AbstractResearchers at the Canada Centre for Remote Sensing of Natural Resources Canada are exploring the use of remotely sensed imagery to assist Search and Rescue in Canada. Studies have been examining the use of Synthetic Aperture Radar for the detection of crashed aircraft. Promising results have been obtained with techniques for detection of dihedrals in interferometfic and polarimetric data. With further development in technologies and techniques, and improved coverage of the Canadian landmass by future spaceborne systems such as RADARSAT-2, it is expected that it will be possible to assist in Search and Rescue for land targets. © 2002 SPIE · 0277-786X/02/$15.00.
