The demonstration of the feasibility of navigation signals signals for remote sensing has lead to a significant increase of new GNSS-R instruments in the recent years. Despite of the type instrument, the observables are based on the cross-correlations of the received GNSS signals. Most of these instruments combine the signals received by multiple chains, in such a way that they need a proper calibration. This work proposes a calibration procedure for GNSS-R instruments by using a calibration signal with similar statistics to the GNSS signals. The method is tested and validated with the Microwave Interferometric Reflectometer (MIR) instrument, which contains 152 chains. The test results will be presented at the conference.
