… And that's a wrap!

Last week was amazing – the largest ever International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS) was held in Munich. With over 2700 participants from 68 countries, and over 2500 scientific presentations, it was an excellent platform for knowledge exchange and the exploration and discussion of topics related to 'Remote Sensing for a Dynamic Earth'. Some of the highlights of the symposium included ESA's Envisat and upcoming Sentinel missions, the future of Earth observation, and last but not least, DLR's TanDEM-X and TerraSAR-X satellites.

DLR Webcast: Interview with Manfred Zink at IGARSS 2012

26. July 2012, 13.47
TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X are exceeding the expectations of the scientific community. Why exactly? And what comes next? During the IGARSS 2012 symposium in Munich, we were able to speak to Manfred Zink, Project Manager of the Ground Segment of the mission. He is responsible for directing the entire mission, from the close flight formation of the TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X satellites to the creation of the digital elevation model.

Congratulations! DLR experts receive IEEE award

23. July 2012, 12.30
DLR scientists had reason to celebrate one month ago – the successful TerraSAR-X mission celebrated its fifth anniversary in space. Today, on 23 July, during the Plenary Session at the International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS 2012) in Munich, the hard work of DLR experts involved in the radar satellite TanDEM-X mission has been recognised. Our DLR colleagues were awarded with the ‘IEEE WRG Baker Paper Award’. This award is given annually to scientists who accomplish extraordinary achievements in the field of electrical engineering and computer science.

Observing Earth from space - IGARSS 2012

12. July 2012, 13.57
The countdown to the International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium, IGARSS 2012, has begun - only 6 days remain. This year, IGARSS will be held at the International Congress Centre in Munich from 22-27 July, and with this blog, we will be reporting on all the breaking announcements and important events. We will do this with written entries, images and webcasts - in which specialists in Earth observation and remote sensing will join us.
