The spaceborne imaging radar program of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has evolved primarily through Seasat and the Shuttle Imaging Radar (SIR) to a multifrequency, multipolarization system capable of monitoring the Earth with a variety of imaging geometries, resolutions, and swaths. In particular, the ability to digitally process and calibrate the data has been a key factor in developing the algorithms which will operationally provide geophysical and biophysical… CONTINUE READING
