A spaceborne Ku-band rotation fan-beam scatterometer (RFSCAT) for sea surface wind field measurement is introduced. The system will be operated in Ku-band frequency so that the dimension of its antenna can be shortened enough for a small satellite platform. Then a simulation method is adopted to analyze the performance of this system. The results show that the proposed scatterometer has a good performance in wind retrieval.
