Paper Abstract

The P-3 ultra-wide band (UWB) UHF SAR system penetrates foliage and has interesting applications including detecting foliage-obscured man-made objects and providing information about the terrain underlying the foliage. The UWB SAR system has collected a variety of forest data and some foliage penetration examples will be presented. An interesting application of the sensor is two-pass interferometry where the underlying terrain topology is mapped. This is in contrast to higher frequency interferometric SAR (IFSAR) which maps the tops of the tree canopy. A comparison of UHF and X-band IFSAR imagery will be presented.
