VAWS: Radar Love – New Data, New Services, and the Rising Allure of SAR
May 20, 2020 @ 11:00 am to 12:00 pm AKDT
Franz J Meyer Professor
Chief Scientist, Alaska Satellite Facility
University of Alaska Fairbanks
The radar remote sensing discipline is going through a series of exciting changes right now. Increasingly free-and-open access to SAR data, improved sensor technologies, and a wealth of brand-new automatic processing services have been transforming the science and applications portfolio that can be serviced by radar sensors. This presentation will introduce you to some of these recent developments, specifically focusing on current and upcoming sensors as well as on new data products and services offered by the Alaska Satellite Facility, NASA’s prime data center for SAR data.
