Paper Abstract

An eight-element of bread board model for TRMM (Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission) precipitation radar has been developed in Communications Research Laboratory (CRL), Japan. The active array system, which consists of all solid components, such as SSPA, LNA, and PIN-diode phase shifter, is integrated to check the basic performance as the spaceborn rain radar. After describing the characteristics of major components, overall performance of antenna scanning is described.
