Science and Operational Applications Research RADARSAT-2/TerraSAR-X- Initiative (SOAR-DLR)

Joint Announcement of Opportunity

Publication date: June 1, 2010

Closing date: September 24, 2010

Earth observation is a well suited tool to monitor our changing world. The corresponding geo-information products support the investigation and understanding of the processes causing and resulting from the change. In this context, the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) and the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) intend to jointly stimulate the scientific utilization of Earth Observation by providing data acquired by their national missions RADARSAT-2 and TerraSAR-X.

This opportunity, announced June 1, 2010, was open to German and Canadian Investigators and focused on the synergistic evaluation of both sensors for basic and applied R&D on algorithms, methods and applications. Bidders with accepted proposal will have access, free of charge, to CSA and DLR images. The deadline for proposal submission was September 24, 2010.

Submitted proposals are currently being evaluated.
