Paper Abstract

Spaceborne microwave scatterometers have successfully provided global ocean surface wind field for two decades. However current scatterometers still cannot satisfy the requirement of achieve ocean wind vectors in nearly all weather and all wind conditions. A new microwave scatterometer - the WindRadar with dual frequency onboard Chinese FengYun-3E meteorological satellite is being developed to attempt to overcome their shortcomings. This paper introduces the objectives of the WindRadar, then describes the design of its some key system characteristics, and the performance of the WindRadar is also analyzed at the end.
