A combination millimeter-wave Doppler radar and THz spectrometer for planetary science

Abstract

A combination 95 GHz radar and 270/560 GHz spectrometer is being built as a space instrument prototype for probing plumes and jet phenomena in the solar system. Dubbed GAISR (Gas And Ice Spectrometer/Radar), the instrument's radar will make simultaneous range/Doppler measurements of 0.1–10 mm sized ice and dust particles out to a few km in range, while its… (More)
