Paper Abstract

The system structure and development scheme for the simulation of spaceborne microwave scatterometer are presented based on systematically reviewing and summarizing the related previous investigations and the wind measurement rationale of scatterometer, in combination with the consideration of current application requirement of China. Subsequently, as an example, a scatterometer simulation system of HY-2 is developed by using the object-oriented programming method. Taking the parameters for HY-2 as input, the simulation experiments of wind field retrieval for conically scanning scatterometer with co-polarizations are conducted by using the simulation platform designed in this paper.
