Abstract : A 5mm Radiometric Instrument was designed to insure component reliability and to provide compatibility with the OV1-86 Satellite. This radiometer was designed to measure temporal and geographic variations in the 60 GHz emission from the earth's atmopheric oxygen mantle. The errors in the satellite vertical as measured by an instrument using the atmospheric 60 GHz radiation can be related to the quantity measured by this radiometer. (Modified author abstract)
