The Swim Instrument, Towards the Launch

Abstract : The wave scatterometer, SWIM, will be on-board the Chinese French oceanographic mission, CFOSAT. It will complete the Chinese wind scatterometer, SCAT. They will provide the scientific community with joint wind and wave measurements for the very first time. The launch is now coming soon: autumn 2018. SWIM is a Ku-band real-aperture radar with 6 rotating fan-beams pointing near nadir. The main characteristics and performance of the instrument measured during the Satellite Integration Campaign, products and ground segment development are presented in this paper, as well as predicted performances estimated from simulations.
