Record #173372:

The CryoSat system: the satellite and its radar altimeter / Guy Ratier, Richard Francis, Constantin Mavrocordatos, Reinhold Zobl.

Title: The CryoSat system: the satellite and its radar altimeter / Guy Ratier, Richard Francis, Constantin Mavrocordatos, Reinhold Zobl.
Author(s): Ratier, Guy.
Francis, Richard.
Mavrocordatos, Constantin.
Zobl, Reinhold.
Date: 2005.
In: ESA Bulletin. (2005.), Vol. 122 (2005)
Abstract: Describes those elements of CryoSat mission to be launched into space. Mission aims to determine by radar small height-related changes in polar ice over a three-year period. Examines requirements on type of measurements to be made, physical stability of system, control of measurement configuration, consistency of data-processing system. Discusses system design, including the SIRAL synthetic aperture interferometric radar altimeter, data handling, attitude control, construction and testing, and launch criteria.
