"In this year of our 25th anniversary, our big, hairy, audacious goal is to lead the revolution in the way the world uses remote-sensing information." - ASF Director Nettie La Belle-Hamer.
ASF Chief Scientist Franz J. Meyer answers questions about synthetic aperture radar (SAR). "We are seeing a change from providing data to providing what I would call information."
Attendees at the 2016 American Geophysical Union meeting visited an ASF user reception, poster sessions (linked here), and a presentation by ASF Chief Scientist Franz Meyer.
Working with ASF engineers, student interns created a prototype for cloud-based SAR processing. "You place an order, and a virtual machine hands back the result."
Recognition for ASF has come this year from all directions - including NASA's Near Earth Network, the University of Alaska, the Alaska State Legislature, and more.
Data from the NISAR satellite, to be launched in 2021, will be distributed by the ASF DAAC. * Sentinel-1B data are now added daily to the ASF DAAC archive along with Sentinel-1A data.
