Spaceborne synthetic aperture radar satellites are nowadays often developed in constellations of two or more satellites providing faster revisit times. Other innovative constellation and SAR concepts include geosynchronous SAR systems and non-sun-synchronous orbits for special applications. In this context, SARcon aims to provide a unique forum for professionals involved in spaceborne synthetic aperture system design and application development to share research ideas, present latest achievements, foster cooperation, and encourage international collaboration. The workshop will have two days of technical program, including plenary sessions and invited papers. Contributions will be invited from researchers and participant from ISPRS society in general, including topics on SAR satellite system design, applications in interferometry and tomography, bi- and multi-static SAR and present and upcoming SAR constellations.


Themes of event:
⦁ Discussion on new SAR satellite constellations for bi-static and mono-static pursuit pairs
⦁ Non-sun-synchronous orbits for new applications
⦁ Geosynchronous SAR
⦁ Innovative applications of SAR and of data from SAR constellations
⦁ DEM/DSM and global DEM generation techniques and applications
⦁ Surface motion estimation from SAR
⦁ SAR for surveillance and security related applications
