UAVSAR – Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle Synthetic Aperture Radar – Facility Instrument Suite

Thursday, August 30, 2018

The L-band radar aboard the Armstrong C-20 aircraft is currently on the two-week ABoVE (Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment) deployment in Fairbanks, AK.  We have successfully completed 6 of the 9 science flights, and both the radar and the aircraft are performing well.

in a few days to complete the San Andreas Fault monitoring flights.
