What is the resistance of R1 ?

For a class I'm doing I have an assignment where we have to do a report on a Space Science Instrument.

I am doing Cloud Profiling Radar.

Part of the report has to involve some calculations which basically just apply out knowledge of physics to the properties of the instrument.

The trouble is I don't really understand what some of the properties mean, and how the radar actually works.

The properties I have are listed here: http://cloudsat.atmos.colostate.edu/instrument/instrument.html [Broken]

If anyone could explain some of these properties to me, that would be great.

Has this choice been approved by your teacher? Although it's satellite-based, the key science goals seem to be meteorological, not space-related.

There's a lot there to be explained. Perhaps you could be more specific.
