Paper Abstract

Recent developments in millimeter-wave receiver have enabled new remote sensing capabilities. MMIC circuits operating at frequencies as high as 200 GHz have enabled low-cost mass producible integrated receivers suitable for array applications. We will describe several ground-based demonstrations of this technology including development of integrated spectral line receivers for atmospheric remote sensing, a synthetic thinned aperture radiometer for atmospheric sounding and imaging and polarimetric array radiometers for astrophysics applications.
