Paper Abstract

The ONERA RAMSES system is a flexible SAR system in constant evolution, developed mainly as a test bench for new technologies and to provide specific data for TDRI (Target Detection, Recognition and Identification) algorithm evaluation. It is flown on a Transall C160 platform operated by the CEV (Centre d'Essais en Vol). In this article we compare the SRTM X-SAR DEM and the ONERA's RAMSES SAR sensor DEM over the same area: the St Mandrier peninsula in south of France. Our study is composed of two parts: after a brief description of our sensor we firstly present a global assessment over the peninsula and secondly we focus on the large buildings to evaluate the detection and measurement capabilities of the SRTM products.
