NEW: Commercial SAR Familiarization Workshop

October 13, 2010

USGIF has just added to the agenda a USGIF Workshop on Commercial SAR Familiarization.

From 2:30 p.m. until about 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 3, SAR experts from NGA and commercial providers will present a tutorial on the Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) imaging process and natural coherence of radar illumination, providing the general SAR user with an understanding of how SAR produces images and how sophisticated products such as elevation models, subsidence maps or change detection applications are generated.

Attendees will also be given a combined overview of the three commercial SAR systems – COSMO-SkyMed, TerraSAR-X and RADARSAT – along with general knowledge of acquisition modes and associated applications. Finally, a representative from NGA will describe how members of the NSG access this data through NGA’s contract vehicle.
