About this event

Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) is an established technique for day/night all-weather Earth observation, with global coverage enabled using a satellite as the platform.  However, this is a very complex and thus costly undertaking, which limits the market opportunities. NovaSAR is a ground-breaking programme that aims to dramatically reduce the cost of a spaceborne SAR satellite through a range of innovative measures to enable potential customers to own such an asset where they would otherwise be unable to.  The lecture will provide a brief introduction to SAR, give examples of some existing systems, and go on to give an overview of the NovaSAR programme and its technology, highlighting the architectural, technological and programmatic innovations that together enable this unique system to be realised.


Martin Cohen B.Eng(Hons) MIEE is the Technical Lead & Engineering Manager for the NovaSAR SAR Payload, Astrium Ltd., Portsmouth
