This file was not used for creating the MSG-1 SRFs, because it was not available at launch, the SRFs
were taken from some similar file. The values are absolutely the same and the above file should
be taken as the reference.

The IR channels spectral response function are taken from the 95K instrument temperature

Excel sheets are converted to ASCII text files
Wavelenghts are converted to wavenumbers
All original values are kept.
