General Information

The Advanced SAR (ASAR) Workshop is organized biennially by the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) to review progress on synthetic aperture radar (SAR) technology. Canada is very active in the field of SAR through its RADARSAT program and its participation in the European Space Agency (ESA) Earth Observation program.

This time, ASAR will be part of the Earth Observation (EO) Summit 2017.  The Summit brings together in one exceptional event the 38th Canadian Symposium on Remote Sensing (CSRS), the 17th Congress of the Association Québécoise de Télédétection (AQT) and the 11th ASAR Workshop. This EO Summit 2017 is an international event to be held in Montreal from 20 to 22 June 2017. It aims to assemble several communities interested in EO, its technologies, applications and societal benefits.

If you would like to be included in the ASAR Workshop mailing list, please send an email to the following address: asc.asar2017.csa@canada.ca.
