KIGAM and KNU are developing a ground-based Arc-scanning SAR system (ArcSAR) mounted on a truck. The system achieves the coherent integration of radar returns from ground targets by the circular motion of the antennae attached to the end of an extendable arm. Precise control of antenna position and the extended coherent-integration-length enable the(More)
microwave frequencies as airborne and spaceborne SAR systems. GB-SAR system has real time capability and flexibility for monitoring in emergency cases such as sudden landslide better than satellite SAR system. Many research papers have been presented using GB-SAR interferometry techniques. These studies are concentrated to a monitoring of natural hazards,(More)
We made a ground-based synthetic aperture radar (GB-SAR) system and tested its interferometric SAR (InSAR) measurement on the displacement of a trihedral corner reflector with atmospheric correction in terms of humidity and range. The GB-SAR worked at C-band with the synthetic aperture length of 5 m. Fully-polarimetric images were obtained with resolutions(More)
—This paper presents the development of a ground-based arc-scanning synthetic aperture radar (ArcSAR) system mounted on a truck. ArcSAR formulates synthetic aperture by a horizontal circular motion of antennas attached at the end of an extendable boom. The ArcSAR system is designed to operate in two different imaging modes: the spot mode and the scan mode.(More)
PVC (Passive Voltage Contrast) fault isolation method by using a SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope) has been widely used for isolating the defective mc (metal contact) in the CMOS logic SRAM bit cell array. The low power (LP) processed sram cells are easy to charging under PVC test and it helps isolating defective contacts in the cell. However, some device(More)
— In order to apply to land mine detection effectively, bistatic GPR using an optical electric field sensor as a receiver has been developed. The optical electric field sensor is very small and uses optical fiber instead of metallic coaxial cable. With the combination of these advantages and the bistatic radar system, it can be possible for an operator to(More)
—This paper presents the variation of the radar backscattering of intertidal mudflats in the west coast of Korea observed by Radarsat-1 synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images and investigates the related factors by an indoor experiment and a field experiment using a ground-based C-band scatterometer. The 15 Radarsat-1 SAR images of the intertidal mudflat(More)
The Korea Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources (KIGAM) and Kangwon National University (KNU) GB-SAR team have been developed a fully polarimetric and interferometric GB-SAR system over past several years. The main objective of this study is to analyse a polarimetric characteristics of various terrain targets measured by a polarimetric GB-SAR system(More)
