LIST OF DEFINITIONS This chapter contains definitions and assumptions, which are applicable to the MWI Instrument, and shall be used consistently by all entities involved in the MWI project, inclung subcontractors and suppliers. The definitions are derived from IRS (MOS-RS-ESA-MWI-0429) section 2.4 and section 2.5 (see [AD23]), and from GDIR (MOS-RS-ESA-SYS-0433) sections 2.2 and 2.3 (see [AD22]). 4.1 GENERAL TERMS AND DEFINITIONS OF MWI Bandwidth Spectral width at which the power response is half the maximum value. Beam Efficiency Integrated power in the main beam relative to the total power received by the antenna. Includes co-polarisation and cross-polarisation components. Channel Spectral element which can compose single element or multiple sub-channels. Channel Bandwidth Half-power point bandwidth. Channel shape The spectral response the instrument over a defined range frequency(ies). Channel shape refers to the overall response the instrument (from the antenna aperture to the instrument output). Dynamic range Range brightness temperatures within which requirements are to be met. Effective field View (EFOV) Effective area swept by the antenna beam during the integration time. Footprint The area is defined by the instantaneous intersection the antenna pattern at the half power level at the Earth s surface. For conically scanning instruments, where the footprint is elliptical, footprint is the arithmetic mean the two axes. Frequency Stability Maximum fference between the real frequency and the actual frequency assigned. Gain See system gain. Half Power Beamwidth (HPBW) Angle at which the antenna's power raation pattern is at half its maximum value. Horizontal Polarisation (H) Electric field is perpencular to the plane incidence. Instantaneous Field View (IFOV) See definition on footprint. Kurtosis Algorithm The microwave raometer amplitude power density function signal is Gaussian stributed. Kurtosis k is given by a ration
15 15 21/07/14 Where x(t) is the pre-detection signal and represents statistical expectation. For a gaussian stributed signal, the kurtosis is always equal to 3. Main Beam The main beam is defined as equal to 2.5 times the HPBW. Out--band rejection The minimum level suppression a signal outside specified channel. Raometric accuracy Difference between the result a measurement and a true value the measurement. Raometric Sensitivity (NEΔT): Smallest change in input brightness temperature or raance that can be detected in the system output for an integration time that is compliant with the sampling stance. The sensitivity requirement applies to calibrated raances and is applicable throughout the dynamic range. System noise, gain variations and calibration noise shall be taken into account when calculating the sensitivity. Following formula shall be used: where TSYS is the receiver noise temperature (inclung antenna losses), Tscene is the scene temperature, B is the bandwidth, τ is the integration time, ΔG/G is the receiver gain variation, τc is the calibration target integration time and N is the amount calibration cycles averaged. Scene Temperature Earth Scene temperature 280 K shall be used, assuming earth is a perfect blackbody. Spatial Sampling Distance (SSD) Distance between the centre adjacent EFOV samples on the Earth s surface. Sub-channel Spectral element, which together with other sub-channels forms a channel. System Gain The overall gain the instrument channel (from the antenna aperture to the instrument output). Vertical Polarisation (V) Electric field is parallel to the plane incidence. Wide Beam The wide beam is defined as 3.0 times the full beam width between the half-power points (i.e. 3.0 times the FWHM). Wide Beam Efficiency The wide-beam efficiency is defined as the ratio total (cross- and co-polarised) energy received by an antenna within its wide beam to the total energy received from all angles, assuming isotropic and unpolarized illumination broad-band noise such as thermal raation.
