Abstract

The main goal of the Sky Polarization Observatory (SPOrt) Program is the measurement of the sky linear polarized emission in the 22-90 GHz frequency range. SPOrt payload will be accommodated on the International Space Station in 2003-2004 for a period of 18 months. The instrument configuration is presented together with most relevant ground activities in support to its realization. In particular, the development of hardware solutions for high sensitive polarimetric measurements, such as those requested by Galactic polarized emission and Cosmic Microwave Background observations, has been addressed by the SPOrt team to match the experiment requirements.
