Abstract
Applications of MMW radiometers in the areas of covert ground based battlefield surveillance by space-borne sensors, storm research by high altitude airborne sensors, missile seeker terminal guidance, forward looking imaging for aircraft landing in low visibility conditions, and covert detection of low level aircraft are discussed in detail. Some representative parameters of state-of-the-art MMW receivers such as effective noise temperatures and RF bandwidths are given. Phenomenological factors such as MMW propagation loss and radiometric properties of the environment are listed and discussed.
