UAVSAR – Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle Synthetic Aperture Radar

Thursday, July 1, 2021

The L-band radar aboard the AFRC C-20A successfully completed all 7 local California flights for monitoring Central San Andreas Fault, Hayward Fault, and the Eel River landslide study.  The Eel River landslide is a joint study with the P-band radar to determine the relative sensitivity of landslide detection between the two frequencies in vegetated area.  Despite the pandemic, we have flown 290 flight hours in FY21 and is slated to fly about 500 hours by the end of FY21.
