Paper Abstract

Precipitation radar (PR) on-board the Tropical Rainfall measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite is the first rain radar to measure precipitation from space. After the successful launch of the TRMM satellite in last November, initial on- orbit test and calibration of the PR were conducted for about two months. From these tests, it was confirmed that on-orbit performances of the PR are fundamentally coincident with those verified at ground test and satisfy the specifications.
