Stratospheric O3 and ClO were simultaneously observed off the northeastern coast of Japan by the Balloon-Borne Superconducting Submillimeter-Wave Limb-Emission Sounder (BSMILES) developed at National Institute of Information and Communications Technology. BSMILES is a highly sensitive submillimeter radiometer that exploits the superconductor-insulator-superconductor (SIS) technology for atmospheric research. This paper presents the first BSMILES spectra, and describes the details of the calibration process. The vertical profiles of O3 and ClO have been also retrieved. In spite of some calibration uncertainties the obtained profiles are in relatively good agreement with previous and other available measurements.
