Paper Abstract

A new generation of submillimeter wave limb sounders require multiband real time spectrometer backends with high constraints on mass, size and power consumption. A new concept, the multiband chirp transform spectrometer (MBCTS) was developed for this purpose. The MBCTS was chosen to be suitable for the Advanced Microwave Atmospheric Sounder (AMAS), a European instrument, which is currently in the breadboarding phase and is planned to be flown in 1999. The basic concept and the development status of the multiband CTS are described.
