Paper Abstract

On June 10, 1997 China launched FY-2 Geostationary Meteorological Satellite into Earth-synchronous orbit with a Long March-3 rocket at Xichang Satellite Launch Center. The satellite is positioned at E105 degrees, 35800 km above the equator. Onboard the satellite there is a multichannel scanning radiometer (MSCR) which can acquire simultaneously Earth images from effective payload onboard the satellite, and it was developed by the Shanghai Institute of Technical Physics, Chinese Academy of Science. This paper mainly introduces the performances, operation principle, basic structure and in-orbit operation of the instrument.
