Smiths Interconnect joins Mitsubishi Electric for G-band satellite development

Smiths Interconnect will design a component with dual band millimeter wave antenna and receivers as a part of the advanced microwave scanning radiometer 3 (AMSR3).

The AMSR3 is designed to receive microwave radiation from the earth and will be mounted on the Global Observing SATellite for Greenhouse gases and Water cycle (GOSAT-GW).

These microwave radiation measurements will assist in preventing disasters attributed to global warming and climate change, and to advance scientific and technological methods that enable more accurate prediction of climate change.

The fully integrated antenna and receiver is an integral part of the system which will provide the frequency and the bandwidth that the GOSAT-GW mission requires.
