Pulse compression allows a substantial reduction in the peak transmitted power of a radar and is attractive for spaceborne remote sensing applications. In the case of a downward looking rain measuring radar, however, the range sidelobes associated with surface return can mask return from rain and must be kept to a minimum. Here, we describe the pulse(More)
—The Jet Propulsion Laboratory's High Altitude MMIC Sounding Radiometer (HAMSR) is a 25 channel microwave sounder with channels near the 60 GHz and 118 GHz oxygen lines and near the 183 GHz water vapor line. It participated in three hurricane field campaigns, CAMEX-4, TCSP and NAMMA. The absolute calibration of the HAMSR brightness temperatures is shown to(More)
The Jet Propulsion Laboratory's (JPL) High Altitude MMIC Sounding Radiometer (HAMSR) is a 25 channel cross-track scanning microwave sounder with 8 sounding channels near the 60 GHz oxygen line complex, 10 channels near the 118.75 GHz oxygen line and 7 channels near the 183.31 GHz water vapor line. It has participated in three Processes (GRIP) field(More)
