Table 2: Instruments supported by RTTOV as of October 2020.
Sensors in italics are not yet supported in the latest RTTOV distribution but can be requested, as can coefficients for sensors not listed here.
“IR/MW-only” refers to v7/v8 predictor files; “VIS/NIR/IR” refers to v9 predictor solar-compatible files.

* Channels 19-21 are only simulated accurately with Zeeman coefficient files.
The channel order in the coefficient files can be determined using the rttov_coef_info.exe executable (see Annex A in the RTTOV user guide), or by looking at the spectral response function and passband page where the linked page for each sensor shows the channel order in the coefficient file.
