Canada is a technology leader when it comes to Synthetic Aperture Radar and has decades of experience through the RADARSAT programs.
In today’s Terranauts podcast host Iain Christie takes you on a decades long journey on what Synthetic Aperture Radar is, how it came to be a defining technology Canada is known for, and why the country ventured on this path.
Iain introduces the podcast this way:
“On the podcast we have talked to Terranauts who have been in on the early days of big programs and we have talked to Terranauts that are bringing new technology to space and to market. Today we are going to talk to a couple of Terranauts who have spent their careers watching and helping a technology through literally three generations in space. That technology is Synthetic Aperture Radar, or RADARSAT as it is known in Canada, and those Terranauts are Gord Rigby and Alan Thompson.”
