Abstract : An analysis of some microwave antennas designed to give accurate predictions of radiometric temperatures of terrestrial targets is described. The convolution of the antenna response and the target temperature distribution, which is the observed radiometric temperature, is evaluated for rectangular aperture and circular aperture antennas with the aid of a digital computer. Temperature distributions consisting of arrays of rectangular and elliptical targets which can be used to simulate buildings and vehicles are considered, as well as strip targets which can be used as models of roads and rivers.
