COSMO-SkyMed Radar Science and Innovation Research (CORSAIR) Programme – Results Workshop

The Satellite Applications Catapult is hosting a workshop to disseminate the results of the COSMO-SkyMed Radar Science and Innovation Research (CORSAIR) programme. The CORSAIR programme facilitated free access to the COSMO-SkyMed Synthethic Aperture Radar (SAR) data for Research and Development (R&D) purposes and was open to applications from UK Industry, Academia and Government.

CORSAIR data has been made available by virtue of a bilateral agreement between the United Kingdom Space Agency (UKSA) and the Italian Space Agency (ASI) and which is designed to complement the associated the UK COSMO-SkyMed Commercial User Terminal (CUT) ground station.

The objective of the CORSAIR program was to provide free data to successful applicants for any application that can especially demonstrate the benefit of high revisit and high reactivity SAR imagery accessed via the CUT.

The results workshop, hosted at the Satellite Applications Catapult, aims to bring together the Principle Investigators of the successful CORSAIR projects and provide a space for open discussion of the results generated as part of the program, with a view to demonstrate the value that free access to commercial data can bring to UK research and industry.

This event will be of interest to members of the Earth Observation community, who have an interest in the exploitation of X-band Synthetic Aperture Radar data, with a view to the future exploitation of Near Real Time (NRT) capability offered by the UK-CUT.

The agenda has yet to be finalised, however will feature oral presentations from numerous Principle Investigators, based in both academia and industry, and grouped by thematic area (e.g. marine, geohazards). Time permitting there will be a facilitated discussion as to how NRT X-band SAR can be exploited in the future.
