Paper Abstract

In this paper Ka-band (37GHz), dual polarization, combined short-pulse scatterometer-radiometer is described, for short distance remote sensing of bare soil and land snow cover and for simultaneous and coincident measurements of observed media microwave reflective and emissive characteristics, under laboratory-control conditions. Developed system is set on a mobile bogie moving on the height of 6.5m along a stationary platform of 26m of length. It allows carry out polarimetric (vv, vh, hh, hv), simultaneous and coincident microwave active-passive measurements of observed surface (soil, soil vegetation, snow and water surface) parameters at angles of incidence from the while of 0-60o.
