STAG Program Weston testing: Slide 3

[STAG test set-up]

Upper photo: The 95GHz radiometric sensor was rope-supported above the midpoint of the water bin 10 feet above the moving target. The sensor RF head weighed less than 15 lbs, as indicated by the scale. Weight is a critical parameter for airborne and satellite sensors. The design is driven by Size, Weight And Power (SWAP)

Lower photo: The system control and data processing unit was packaged in a standard 3.5 inch panel for 19 inch console mounting. The control unit was located in the garage with the PC, AC-DC converter, and strip chart recorder.
