Paper Abstract

An imaging 'radarometer' mode integrates a radar with a radiometer in a manner which allows simultaneous use of a common imaging antenna. The goal of this research effort was the design of a MMW camera capable of obtaining simultaneous passive and active airborne images, in the radarometer mode. An ETU was assembled to verify the design of an Engineering Model and to determine if any significant design changes were needed. ETU flight test data is presented and discussed in terms of sensor system capabilities and the Engineering Model design approach.
