This project has been devoted to develop several tools to assess in-flight performance of the MIRAS SMOS amplitude calibration. It has been mainly focused to analyze the performance of current internal calibration by means of the so-called one-point calibration. This allowed to develop External CAS and Antenna efficiency correction parameters to improve overall MIRAS amplitude calibration accuracy.
