Spaceborne validation of a 183 GHz radiometer.

Description

Spaceborne validation of a 183 GHz radiometer, utilizing an indium phosphide low noise amplifier front-end, to measure water vapor emission from the Earth’s atmosphere. To advance the technology of the 35 nm indium phosphide (InP) receiver subsystem of the radiometer instrument. To advance the technology of a 183 GHz water vapor radiometer CubeSat system. To reduce the risk for future users of the technology. To enhance the hands-on training for the RACE project team members within the Phaeton Program platform. To explore possibilities for smaller missions with distributed risks.
