mmWave Remote Sensing
A discussion of space-based millimeter-wave remote sensing. Topics include data products and applications; phenomenology and underlying theory of operation; and instrument implementation approaches, including hardware and algorithms. Comparisons are made between different mission and instrument architectures to contextualize the driving requirements for sensor precision and accuracy.
Kent Anderson received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering from the Rose Hulman Institute of Technology, Terre Haute, IN, USA, in 1971 and 1972, respectively. He has 30-year experience in systems engineering for spaceborne remote sensing systems. For the last 15 years, he has been the Lead Systems Engineer for Civil Space Programs with Northrop Grumman Electronic Systems, Azusa, CA, USA, focused primarily on millimeter-wave radiometry, particularly for the ATMS program. His research interests include requirements management, initial design trade studies, performance analyses, and analyses of test data.
