What is Sentinel 1?
The Sentinel-1 mission is a joint European Commission (EC) and European Space Agency (ESA) program called the European Radar Observatory for Copernicus (ESA). Copernicus is a European initiative to provide environmental and security-related information services. It is based on data from Earth Observation satellites and information from the ground. Sentinel-1 uses C-band imaging in four different imaging modes, each with different resolutions (down to 5 m) and spatial coverage (up to 400 km). It has dual-polarization(VV, VH, HH) capability, quick revisit times, and quick product delivery. Precision measurements of spacecraft location and attitude are provided for each observation. Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) benefits from operating at wavelengths that are not hampered by cloud cover or a lack of illumination, unlike …Read More →
