UAVSAR (Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle Synthetic Aperture Radar)

Friday, June 14, 2013

The JPL UAVSAR team briefed NASA's ESD Research and Analysis Program Director, Dr. Jack Kaye, on significant science results based on UAVSAR data. These recent science results covered four disciplines: solid earth deformation, terrestrial hydrology, terrestrial ecology, and levee health. They demonstrated UAVSAR's utility in algorithm validation and calibration for the SMAP mission, mission design trades for the DESDynI mission, and long term monitoring of levee health as well as identifying levee weakness during a flood.
