The manufacturers at Sigma Space (contact:ScanScenario_CAPRICORN_v12.txt

The manufacturers at Sigma Space (contact: Adam Slagel) notified me that the scanner should be set to an azimuth of 0degrees whilst pointing at zenith (elevation=90degrees). From Adam Slagel: "When you have the scanner pointed vertically (90º), keep the azimuth angle at 0°. In short, there are some positions of the scanner that have slightly different polarization properties, which tend to occur only when the scanner is pointing vertically with a varying azimuth angle. This has to do with the physical properties of the mirror coatings since they cannot match the theoretical design values 100%. They are as close as current techniques and technology will allow, but still not exact. " Therefore whilst the scanner is sitting at zenith (except for the elevation scans from 0-90 and 90-0) I set the azimuth to 0degrees. Scan pattern file: ScanScenario_CAPRICORN_v12.txt
