Statistical synthesis and analysis of the additive noise microwave radiometer with optimal structure

Valeriy K. Volosyuk, Vladimir V. Pavlikov, Semen S. Zhyla


An optimal algorithm for estimation of the brightness temperature of intrinsic thermal radio radiation of objects having different physical nature in additive noise microwave radiometer has been synthesized. A functional block diagram implementing this algorithm was developed. The limiting error of estimating the desired parameter was calculated, and the potential fluctuation sensitivity of the proposed radiometer was investigated.
