Passive remote sensing applications rely heavily on precise measurements, thus necessitating the mitigation of interference and noise. This study proposes a method for measuring noise performance for an arbitrary antenna array receiver system. This is achieved by analyzing four key areas: LNA Design, Antenna Design, Array Design, and Receiver Design. By altering the characteristics of each of these areas we can measure the resulting noise of the receiver system and understand the benefits and disadvantages of each. This method offers valuable insights for the optimization of receiver systems with regards to noise mitigation and can serve as a method noise performance study for future and existing architectures.
