Measurements of both the Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) and Aquarius L-band microwave radiometers show a significant presence of radio frequency interference (RFI), although they operate in a protected frequency band where transmission is prohibited. RFI detection and mitigation remain a challenging problem for both missions, especially for low or moderate (i.e., on the order of 10 K or less) amplitude contributions. An algorithm for low-level source detection and mitigation is already… CONTINUE READING
