On 14 Aug 2017, Japanese Meteorological Agency (JMA) submitted their Himawari-8-IASI-A/AIRS cross calibration product for GPPA review
The Himawari-8-IASI/AIRS cross calibration product follows the MTSAT-IASI/AIRS cross calibration product that JMA had in Demo Phase during the lifetime of the MTSAT. This MTSAT-IASI cross calibration product had satisfied the GPPA Demo Phase criterion and the now submitted H 8-IASI/AIRS cross calibration product is built above the previous product in the sense that the algorithms and ATBD's have already been reviewed for acceptance.
The Himawari series of GEO instruments is advanced GEO satellites of the GOES class. Cross calibration of the H8/9 has been carried on and reported on a daily basis ( See here

Clarification On the Impact Report (E-Mail: Masaya Takahashi, 14 Aug 2017)
The impacts of using AHI IR GSICS Correction on users' applications are
expected to be generally small because the AHI biases are small and stable
(e.g. performance report on https://doi.org/10.1117/12.2188978
), but it
could have non-negligible impacts on specific applications such as SST.
The GPERF (GSICS Product External Review Form) for Pre-Op Phase will be
the impact report.
