This paper introduces an on-board signal processing subsystem of a spaceborne rotating fan-beam scatterometer in China. The subsystem processes returned signal after downconversion to intermediate frequency. To reduce the data stream downlinked from the satellite, the final data bins are summed into 34 energy slices, each with a range resolution of 10 km… CONTINUE READING
