Abstract

The BIOMASS mission gives completely new challenges in external calibration arising from the orbital pattern needed for the tomographic and Pol-InSAR phases of the mission, the strong effects of the ionosphere at P-band, and the lack of pre-existing P-band data except over very limited parts of the globe. Together these create problems that can only be solved by combining infrequent visits to instrumented calibration sites with systematic exploitation of the properties of distributed targets and targets of opportunity. Proposed approaches to performing radiometric and polarimetric calibration are described, together with meeting geolocation accuracy requirements.
