Paper Abstract

The MIT Lincoln Laboratory 33.6 GHz airborne synthetic aperture radar (SAR) is a high- resolution (0.3 m x 0.3 m), fully polarimetric instrumentation radar system1. Performance specifications for this sensor are stringent2, and in order to meet these specifications, sophisticated calibration procedures have been developed and are implemented during ground-based, post-mission data processing. This paper reviews the performance specifications, describes the calibration procedures, and provides a status of the calibration effort since the sensor became operational in 1988.
