Senior Project - A-SAR


Analysis and Visualization of Synthetic Aperture Radar Data

Senior Project: 1995-1996
Jessica Henthorne, James Miller, Yuriy Shterk and Kurt Van Horn
Boulder, CO

The Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) of Pasadena, CA has developed some unique radar data. Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) is a technology used by many scientific disciplines for remote sensing of the Earth by producing high resolution radar images from aircraft or spacecraft. JPL has developed an airborne interferometric SAR (TOPSAR), which allows the direct measure of topography in addition to the usual radar image. Vexcel's goal was to develop software to allow interactive display and analysis of this AIRSAR/TOPSAR data, and for saving the various images resulting from this activity. The software was developed for UNIX workstations using an object-oriented approach and C++. The user interface was developed with Motif.
