The synthetic aperture radar (SAR) technology enables satellites to efficiently acquire high quality images of the Earth surface. This generates significant communication traffic from the satellite to the ground stations, and, thus, image downlinking often becomes the bottleneck in the efficiency of the whole system. In this paper we address the downlink scheduling problem for Canada’s Earth observing SAR satellite, RADARSAT-2. Being an applied problem, downlink scheduling is characterised with… CONTINUE READING
