2007 2007 IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium  
Ground based tests of the GeoSTAR (geostationary synthetic thinned array radiometer) demonstrator instrument are reported which simulate the view of the earth from geosynchronous earth orbit (GEO).  ...  The test used a 4-meter target disk mounted on a tower above the instrument to simulate the brightness of the earth with a contrasting cold background.  ...  The far-field of the demonstrator instrument is over 200 meters, which would require a target of some 50 meters diameter to represent the earth view from GEO.  ...
