::: Polarization is a relative measurement that can be made accurately + many scattering angles.
::: Polarimetric ScanPol measurements will be calibrated on the orbit.
::: Polarization change with scattering angle and wavelength gives microphyscs: size, refractive index and shape of aerosol.
::: Synergy of scanner and imager will produce new quality of data, hopefully different from similar aerosol missions.
The Ukrainian Aerosol-UA instrument concept at YuzhSat platform provides synergy of precision scanner-polarimeter and imaging polarimeter, and has no analog in other planned missions.
