  • March 2010

Band 6

Band 7

Band 9

Map sizes and sampling

  • Minimum sampling to allow +-15deg farfield span without aliasing
    • Band 9: 121x121 points is lambda/0.55 at band center
    • Band 10: 165x165 points "
  • Map sizes recommended
    • Band 3: 100mm x 100mm with 81x81points is lambda/2.43 at band center. Warning: Larger map allows direct path around the warm optics.
    • Band 4: 100mm x 100mm with 81x81 points is lambda/1.45 at upper end of band
    • Band 6: 125mm x 125mm with 101x101 points is lambda/0.99 at band center. (Larger size needed to characterize the known sidelobe.)
    • Band 7: 100mm x 100mm with 101x101 points is lambda/0.81 at upper end
    • Band 8: 100mm x 100mm with 101x101 points is lambda/0.62 at upper end (492 GHz)
    • Band 9: 100mm x 100mm with 121x121 points
    • Band 10: 100mm x 100mm with 165x165 points

ASIAA results

Future data needed

  • Suggested scan parameters
    • 127x127 with a window size of 100.8126mm ( = 63*12.7*(127-1) microns)
  • After LORTM installation
    • Band 9: Andrey's horn
    • Band 3,6,7: OEW
