Recent results are reviewed from an IIP project on the development of digital backends for microwave radiometer systems. The digital backends developed implement real-time RFI suppression algorithms for interferers localized in either time or frequency. Results from ground and airborne experiments at Land C-bands are described that indicate the advantages of digital receivers in reducing RFI effects on measured brightnesses.
