Remote sensing of the atmosphere and the earth surface can aid in the solution of some fundamental scientific and national economic problems. These problems include meteorology, weather forecast and climate evolution, studies of the natural resources of the earth and environmental control. A satellite borne infrared scanning spatial radiometer is an important tool for the study of different natural and anthropogenic objects from space. A new infrared scanning radiometer having an efficiently cooled detector forms a part of the `Meteor-3' meteorological satellite. In this report the technical characteristics and principles of its operation will be described. Results of the data gathered during flight experiments will be presented. The technical problems in obtaining a cooling system with a long life-time and reliable operation will be described. Results obtained from `Meteor-3' show that these radiometers can provide global and local hydrometeorological information and can also help in the solution of ecological problems such as those found in the region of the Aral sea.
