Notes
  1. The RFM assumes no spectral dependence of the FOV so only one FOV can be specified for each RFM run.
  2. The FOV response can be expressed either as a function of altitude or as a function of elevation angle. Elevation angles are required if used in conjunction with the OBS Flag since tangent points (and tangent heights of the paths required for the FOV convolution) can, in principle, vary by large amounts, e.g. right beside the instrument for a horizontal view.
  3. See .fov file format for more information.

Example
*FOV
