In this paper, an SMMW interferometric radiometer concept is demonstrated by a two-element interferometer with dedicated high accuracy SMMW devices. Point-source calibration method is introduced in order to reduce instrument errors. Interference fringes and point target images are presented by this SMMW interferometer. The linear phase error of the interference fringes is less than 2?and the angular resolution is better than 0.57? The measured performance characteristics of the two-element interferometer are consistent with the theoretical analysis. This interferometer demonstrates a new method for passive SMMW remote sensing. ?2016, Science Press. All right reserved.

Sea surface salinity (SSS) plays an important role in global water cycle. In recent years, satellite based remote sensing has proven to be a promising approach for global SSS observation. A new payload concept, named MICAP (microwave imager combined active and passive), has been introduced in this paper. MICAP is a suit of active/passive instrument package, which includes L/C/K band one-dimensional MIR (microwave interferometric radiometer) and L-band DBF (digital beamforming) scatterometer, sharing a parabolic cylinder reflector. MICAP has been selected to be a candidate payload for future Chinese ocean salinity mission. In this paper, the MICAP instrument concept, specification and preliminary system design will be introduced.
