Paper Abstract

The Along Track Scanning Radiometer is a radiometer designed to measure sea surface temperature to be flown aboard ERS1. This paper shows how the focal plane assembly was designed to meet the high performance required for each channel. It also presents solutions to additional thermal and mechanical problems presented by the design.
