Pseudo-Correlation Radiometer

NSSDCA ID: 2001-027A-01

Mission Name: WMAP
Principal Investigator:Dr. Charles L. Bennett


The WMAP instrument consists of pseudo-correlation differential radiometers fed by two back-to-back 1.5 m primary Gregorian reflectors. This instrument uses five frequency bands from 22 GHz to 90 GHz to facilitate rejection of foreground signals from our own Galaxy. The WMAP instrument has a 3.5 degree x 3.5 degree field of view.
