This paper discusses the results from the creation and testing of a high precision two-channel Ku-band downconverter development by the University of Massachusetts and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The Kuband downconverter is a critical part (in terms of performance) of interferometric radar systems. The designed Ku-band downconverter is built and tested over temperature ranges and included in a rooftop deployed radar looking at snow covered ground. Lessons learned from the Ku-band development… Expand
