Keywords: SARAT system, airborne SAR, SAR data focusing, Back Projection, Interferometry, Polarimetry
Abstract. In this paper, some results obtained through the processing of data acquired from the Argentinian L-band SARAT system are presented. SARAT is an airborne system that was developed as a first conceptual step toward the design of the Argentinian L-Band satellite mission SAOCOM-1. In particular, some studies relevant to the data focusing, and also regarding the interferometric and polarimetric capabilities of the SARAT system are hereby shown. The considered dataset, relevant to an area located in the Cordoba province, Argentina, has been provided by the National Commission of Space Activities of Argentina (CONAE). This work has been developed in the framework of a collaboration between the Italian Space Agency (ASI) and CONAE.
