Paper Abstract

Digital data recorded in-flight on wideband magnetic tapes during a recently concluded flight test of a synthetic aperture radar (SAR) are available to qualified members of the technical and scientific community. These data were gathered during a 72-flight USAF-sponsored program making use of real-time digital signal processing in a forward looking advanced multimode radar (F LAM R). For the purpose of making the data available to qualified users a F LAM R SAR data bank is maintained for the U. S. Air Force Avionics Laboratory by Applied Research Laboratories, The University of Texas at Austin. The data bank, its contents, and its facilities are briefly discussed. The digital data formats and features are identified and illustrations are presented. Examples of the four resolutions of imagery available, together with aerial photographs to approximately the same scale for several of the scenes, are presented.
