Radar satellites: future perspectives

The recipe for successful InSAR projects also includes satellite data availability and frequency. In a global scenario of an increasing number of Earth-observing satellites, the availability of robust, long-term datasets opens new possibilities for monitoring services.

In just a few years, the number of radar satellites have been dramatically increased and improved. New satellites, launched during 2014 and later in 2015, are in the range of different microwaves (C, X and L band). An example of this is Sentinel-1 A, the latest mission launched in 2014.
