The Earth Explorer Biomass will provide global maps of the amount of carbon stored in the world's forests and how this changes over time, mainly through absorbing carbon dioxide, which is released from burning fossil fuels.

DSI-AS designs, develops, manufactures and qualifies the PDHU which would be responsible for data acquisition and data storage from the instrument and from the on-board computer. The PDHU is also responsible for data formatting, retention and playback to the X-band transmitter.
