California Central Valley Case Study

RSS has developed state-of-the-art, large-area coverage, topographic mapping capabilities using Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR).  Our InSAR design leverages advances in technology, including RSS’ARENA, along with robust calibration methodologies.  As a result we can map large-areas efficiently (including through fog or cloud cover) but with vertical accuracies and spatial resolutions that can now address many science and user needs.
