Description
The Radar Altimeter (RA) is one of the instruments carried on-board of
the European Remote Sensing Satellites (ERS-1 and ERS-2) launched by
the European Space Agency on 17 July 1991 and 20 April 1995.

ERS-1 and ERS-2, operating in a sun-synchronous orbit, were conceived
as an orbiting platform that would be capable of measuring the Earth's
atmospheric and surface properties with a high degree of accuracy on a
global scale.
