The FLORAD mission is aimed at the retrieval of thermal and hydrological properties of the troposphere, specifically temperature profile,(More)
Satellite constellation designers take into consideration the entire telecommunication network and their design choices are influenced by many factors including: number of satellites, orbital characteristics, coverage area, network interconnections, system cost, and complexity. When the satellite constellation design method does not include a large number(More)
