The Thermal InfraRed Sensor (TIRS) is one of the instruments on the Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM) satellite. It will continue the archive of thermal imaging and support emerging applications such as evapotranspiration rate measurements for water management. TIRS is being built by NASA GSFC and has a three-year design life. This timelapse shows the 92 hours during which TIRS was cleaned, bagged, and packed to ship to Orbital Sciences Corporation in Arizona, where it will be integrated with the spacecraft.
