Airborne Microwave Radiometer

The Airborne Microwave Radiometer (AMR) is a NASDA-developed airborne instrument in the ADEOS-II/AMSR program with the following basic objectives:

  • To confirm the AMSR design specifications with respect to selected frequencies and bandwidths,
  • To provide early data for the development of retrieval algorithms,
  • To calibrate and validate the AMSR data with underflight experiments after ADEOS-II launch, and
  • To promote the scientific use of microwave radiometer data.
