17 December 1996 Design consideration for a spaceborne cloud radar
Author Affiliations +
This paper initially summarizes the scientific requirements for a space borne cloud radar and different mission scenarios are categorized. The major system design constraints and their possible impact are then described in greater detail. A number of different concepts are then briefly described. The possible performance of an along track cloud radar is then estimated, this relatively simple concept being fairly typical of the type of concept that is likely to be first employed in orbit.
