Abstract : The patent describes a combined radar-radiometer which includes a dual-frequency modulated oscillator which functions as the radar transmitter and as the radar and radiometer local oscillator. In one embodiment, one antenna serves to receive both radar and radiometric signals and another antenna transmits the radar signals. In the other embodiment one antenna serves all three functions. The radar and radiometer signals are processed and kept separate in paralleled channels.
