We plan to have two independent polarimetry systems at MESA based on totally different physical processes. A first one tries to minimize the systematic uncertainties in double polarized Mo\ller scattering, which is to be achieved by stored hydrogen atoms in an atomic trap (Hydro-Mo\ller-Polarimeter). The other one relies on the equality of polarizing and analyzing power which allows to measure the effective analyzing power of a polarimeter with very high accuracy. Since the status of Hydro-Mo\ller is presented in a separate paper we concentrate on the double scattering polarimeter in this article.
