AbstractWith Radarsat-1 presently in operation and Radarsat-2 approved, Canada is starting to develop synthetic aperture radar (SAR) applications that require imagery on an operational schedule.Sea ice surveillance is now a proven near-real-time application, and new marine and coastal roles for SAR imagery are emerging. Although some image quality and calibration issues remain to be addressed, ship detection and coastal wind field retrieval are now in demonstration phases, with significant participation from the Canadian private sector.
