Rain Radar

Based on previous developments (X-band GB-SAR), the Rain Radar is a new approach in meteorological radar technique to get complete Doppler spectra of hydrometeors in a height between 100 and 8000 meters. It is highly reconfigurable for different cell resolution (1.5m, 15m 50m & 100m). It will be able to …

Geosynchronous – Continental Land-Atmosphere Sensing System (G-CLASS)

G-CLASS is a space mission currently under feasibility study (Phase A). It was selected by the ESA’s Advisory Committee for Earth Observation (ACEO) to compete as the tenth Earth Explorer mission together with two different mission concepts. G-CLASS involves many universities and remote sensing research centers from all over Europe …

Persistent Scatter Interferometry (PSI) processing

Persistent Scatter (PS) Interferometry (PSI) is a powerful remote sensing technique able to measure and monitor displacements of the Earth’s surface over time. PSI represents a specific class of DInSAR (Differential Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar) techniques, which exploits multiple SAR images acquired over the same area. It utilizes appropriate data …

94GHz Radar for civilian structure monitoring

This is an experimental 94 GHz (W-Band) CW-FM Radar that can be configured as a Ground Based SAR for high resolution imaging and interferometry. Several experimental campaigns have been carried out to assess the capability of the system to remotely observe submillimetric deformation and vibration in infrastructures. Several ground based …

94GHz Cloud Radar

In 2014, RSLAB began to explore our capabilities to develop a small size, 94GHz band, single pol, high sensitivity Radar, capable to provide range profiles of parameters that contain information about scatterers in the atmosphere such as cloud particles, raindrops, snowflakes and insects. The radar utilizes (again, as in previous …

SAR in DRONE

Low-weight full-polarimetric SAR in Drone Airborne Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) sensors have been commonly used during the last decades to monitor different phenomena in medium-scale areas of observation, such as object detection and characterization or topographic mapping. The use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) is a cost-effective solution that offers …

Risk SAR

The RS-lab full polarimetric-interferometric GB-SAR     Ground-based synthetic aperture radar (GB-SAR) sensors represent a cost-effective solution for change detection and ground displacement assessment of small-scale areas in real time early warning applications. The main differences between GB-SARs and classical Orbital or Airborne SARs are the way the aperture is …
