The development of new information product generation algorithms, their implementation in the context of actual or future spaceborne SAR missions, and finally their demonstration and validation are main tasks performed by the group. The development of performance analysis models for inversion and product generation algorithms and the design of innovative calibration techniques for ongoing, planned and future SAR missions - including the calibration of propagation distortions - are the core activities. Finally, the design and the evaluation of experiments in the frame of actual SAR missions for the demonstration of new applications, the support and validation of the performance modis and calibration algorithms complement the group activities. The group contributes to several international studies and participates actively in the science advisory teams of national, European and international SAR missions and mission proposals.
Examples of the actual activities are:
