Abstract

Design considerations concerning a scanning as well as a push-broom microwave radiometer system are presented. Strict requirements to spatial and radiometric resolution leads to a multiple-beam scanner achieving good sensitivity through integration over many beams, or to a push-broom system where sensitivity is not a problem. Strict requirements to land contamination leads to a dense feed array system. Resource demands, especially power, are important issues, and first estimates are presented.
