Abstract. The Radiation Explorer in the Far Infrared - Prototype for Applications and Development (REFIR-PAD) is a Fourier transform spectroradiometer that has been designed to operate both from stratospheric balloon platform and from ground. It has been successfully deployed in a stratospheric balloon flight and several ground based campaigns from high altitude sites, including the current installation in the Concordia Italian-French Antarctic station. The instrument is capable to operate autonomously with only a limited need of remote control and monitoring, and is providing a multi-year dataset of spectrally resolved atmospheric downwelling radiances, measured in the 100–1500cm−1 spectral range with 0.4cm−1 resolution and a radiometric uncertainty better than 0.85mW/m2srcm−1.

Short summary
The characterization of the infrared radiation emitted by the atmosphere is a crucial task in the study of the Earth's climate. The Radiation Explorer in the Far Infrared (REFIR) spectroradiometer allows to perform this task adding the capability of resolving, through spectroscopy, the atmospheric components responsible of the measured radiative effects. The analysis of the measurements allows also to retrieve the atmospheric structure, making REFIR a complete tool for atmospheric studies.
