An investigation on users' requirements for future passive microwave scanning radiometers, especially the advanced microwave scanning radiometer (AMSR), which is one of the Earth Observing System instruments, has been conducted together with a preliminary design of the AMSR system. As a result, mission parameters for the AMSR have been determined while the feasibility of the electronically scanning type of AMSR has been confirmed. In particular, it is found that a beam-switching antenna system that was developed makes possible multifrequency measurement, and multiple beam conical scanning, while preserving polarization purity
