On Tuesday, 12 April 2016 at 12:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time, the IEEE MTT Society is presenting a live webinar on the topic of: Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Technology and Applications: Serving the Humanitarian Needs.
This webinar will be presented by Dr. Paul Rosen, Project Scientist for NASA-ISRO Synthetic Aperture Radar mission concept at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in the United States have embarked on the formulation of an Earth orbiting science and applications mission that will exploit synthetic aperture radar to map the Earth’s surface. The mission’s primary objectives are the study of Earth land and ice deformation, and ecosystems in areas of common interest to the US and Indian science and applications communities. The science requirements demand complete coverage of land and ice covered surfaces at fine spatial resolution, sampled at least twice (ascending and descending orbits) each 12 day repeat cycle. This observational approach can be beneficial to disaster response activities, as estimation of areas of damage or significant change due to a disaster within a few days of the event can be of significant value to disaster workers responding to a humanitarian crisis. Examples from existing satellites will demonstrate the potentials offered by NISAR in the context of the international constellation of satellites. This webinar is free to attend.
