SAR-Lupe video

December 28, 2008

The German defense ministry a while back posted an interesting video of how it will be using the SAR-Lupe radar satellite system.

I’ve been meaning to post on this for some time, but like most satellite programs, this post has been running somewhat behind schedule. You can access the video here.

The video narration is only in German, but even if you can’t follow the words, the video still sheds a bit more light on the SAR-Lupe system.

The video doesn’t answer the biggest SAR-Lupe question, though. What’s the resolution? It only says the system can deliver better than 1 meter resolution.
