Abstract

Monsoons and typhoons bring along heavy precipitation that produce great threats (i.e., mud slide, land slide, river flooding, etc.) in Taiwan which have caused tremendous disasters and the predicted future trend of them can be even more devastating. A multi-channel MicroWave Radiometer (MWR) space instrument, with its advantages of all-weather capability, repeat pass orbit selected, wide swath, can provide not only in-time coverage and daily monitoring for a disaster early warning system (i.e., beyond the ground radars ranging distances from the Taiwan island) in terms of the key precipitation and other parameters needed by the CWB (Central Weather Bureau) of Taiwan and the operations organizations/agencies for disasters mitigation in Taiwan. This paper describes a payload definition effort for an envisioned Taiwan's small satellite mission with its on-going and projected work.
