Scanning Polarimetric Imaging RAdiometer

A fully polarimetric imager in the 90-92 GHz frequency band

 

Why an Imaging Radiometer?

 

Passive microwave imaging systems became standard tools for remote sensing in Earth science, astrophysics, biology, medicine and security. An imager collects thermal radiation of a scene, presents it as an image and, when calibrated, determines brightness temperature and emission characteristics of observed objects.

 

Radiometers can observe through smoke, fog, clouds and solid materials,are silent and hard to detect.

 

MW imagers suffer from poor spatial resolution compared to infrared or optical cameras.
