A space-borne sensing technology that’s been flying under the radar for some time is now coming of age, and its maturation process has spawned a formidable set of products and services. Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) imaging features a host of different characteristics to optical imaging from space – it is impervious to weather and lighting conditions, but requires considerably more processing muscle and smarts to extract meaningful insight outputs. Position sat down with Ralf Duering, Asia-Pacific Business Development Director for Airbus’ TerraSAR-X platform, to discuss some of the ins and outs of this intriguing technology.
