Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present an overall description of the newest Chinese airborne SAR mapping system CASMSAR, which is developed by a group led by Chinese Academy of Surveying and Mapping (CASM). Since CASMSAR is equipped with two independent high-resolution SAR sensors (X-band and P-band), it allows the integration of interferometric and fully polarimetric functions. Another novel feature of CASMSAR is the software control of system monitoring and flight navigation display, which makes the whole system very intelligent and operational. The data processing software systems of CASMSAR consists of five subsystems. CASMSAR works in several modes. The most important two of them are used for mapping in scale of 1:10,000 and 1:50,000. Initial data were acquired during several testing flight campaigns in last year, and experimental results have proved that the system works well and the performance is better than expectation.
