Description
NASA/JPL have built and operated a series of airborne imaging radar
systems. NASA/JPL currently maintain and operate an airborne SAR
system, known as AIRSAR/TOPSAR, which flies on a NASA DC-8 jet. In one
mode of operation, this system is capable of simultaneously collecting
all four polarizations (HH,HV, VH and VV) for three frequencies: L-
band (lambda ~ 24 cm); C-band (lambda ~ 6 cm) ; and P-band (lambda ~
68 cm). In another mode of operation, the AIRSAR/TOPSAR system
collects all four polarizations (HH,HV, VH and VV) for two
