ABOUT Frazer

Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Operator Course

OVERVIEW

The significant S-100 Camcopter payload capacity combined with the miniaturisation of imagery sensors means that you can benefit from operating with a SAR sensor. This module allows students to understand the nature of SAR imagery and the significant benefits it can provide as part of the mix of sensors available to the mission.

Due to the specific nature of the sensor, the module length and depth will be dependent on the experience of the students and overall mission requirements. The content will be flexible depending on the need and availability of a SAR simulator or a live SAR sensor.

Students must have already attended the ISR Fundamentals and IMINT Fundamental courses.

Course Prospectus 

SUBJECTS COVERED

  • An introduction to the use of radar imagery
  • The theory of SAR in an operational context
  • Understanding SAR anomalies
  • SAR payload/platform characteristics
  • SAR modes and resolution considerations
  • How to plan for SAR imagery missions
  • Collecting SAR imagery in different modes.
  • TARGET AUDIENCE

    This is an advanced operator’s course - only those that have a specific requirement to operate with SAR imagery should attend. Without this background, students will not have the operational understanding necessary to operate the SAR sensor effectively.
