 We design radars and radiometers for earth and space science.
NASA Goddard Space Flight Center's Microwave Instrument Technology Branch focuses on state-of-the-art active and passive microwave instrument design for Earth science, space science and exploration.  From effective involvement in mission conceptual studies to research into component design and end-to-end instrument development, the Branch provides NASA with a valuable resource for missions requiring radiometers, radars, scatterometers, and all sensors covering the microwave through millimeter wave spectrum. 

And as a resource, the branch (also known as Code 555) has 21 full-time civil service engineers with a range of skills and experience from renowned PhDs to skilled technicians.
