The Copernicus Imaging Microwave Radiometer, CIMR, mission will carry a wide-swath conically-scanning multi-frequency microwave radiometer to provide observations of sea-surface temperature, sea-ice concentration and sea-surface salinity. Uniquely, it will also observe a wide range of other sea-ice parameters. CIMR responds to high-priority requirements from key Arctic user communities.
Von Hoerner & Sulger, as part of a consortium led by High Performance Space Structure Systems GmbH (HPS), develops and builds the electronics for deploying the antenna in space.
The Copernicus Programme is an evolution of the previous Global Monitoring for Environment and Security GMES Programme, an Earth monitoring initiative led by the European Union (EU) and carried out in partnership with the EU Member States and the European Space Agency (ESA).
