Abstract
Microwave radiometers are widely used for remote sensing and radio astronomical observations. Their absolute accuracy depends on the performance of the blackbody targets which are used for the radiometric calibration. In this paper we summarize the performance aspects of such calibration targets and present different designs for upcoming ESA missions.
