Microwave radiometers (MWR) can be used passively, to get regolith's thickness, brightness temperature and dielectric constant. Apart from that, I have little idea of how the instrumentation's parameters affect the measurements.
So, the situation is as such. There are quite a few Earth-based remote sensing MWRs. Can I use them directly for a lunar orbiter? If not, what changes would these have to incorporate in order to be useful, if possible at all? Also, References would be helpful, since I am new to this.
