RADARSAT-2 Beam Modes

2015-10-07 - The multiple mode capabilities of RADARSAT-2 respond to the evolving needs of clients and encourage the development of specialized applications. With three times the resolution of RADARSAT-1, RADARSAT-2 offers more precision for identifying objects such as ships at sea, and its 512 separately controlled miniantennas can be quickly reconfigured. In addition to the HH polarization offered by its predecessor, RADARSAT-2 can also image using HV, VH, or VV polarization. (Credit: MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. (MDA))
