ABOUT Frazer

Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Imagery Course

OVERVIEW

This course allows students to understand the complexities of SAR imagery including its use as both a planning tool and as a source for specific gathering of information. Students will work through a range of realistic scenarios to ensure they get the best from SAR at the mission planning stage and go on to analyse and interpret what has been collected against the intent of the mission. Students will become proficient in the analysis of SAR imagery including the ability to conduct change detection between images and interpret data from Movement Target Indication (MTI).

By the end of the course, students will be able to mitigate against SAR anomalies, understand platform characteristics on the sensor and recognise the importance of SAR resolution in answering intelligence questions. Dependent on the customer requirements, we will also look to include appropriate exploitation software and simulation to ensure students get the most from the course.

Course content is tailored to the needs of the customer but the course is designed to be a week in duration. This course can be combined with the week-long Imagery Fundamentals course to aid understanding of the subject.
