The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency’s (JAXA) Advanced Land Observing Satellite (ALOS) was successfully launched on January 24, 2006.
Since the second half of 2006, ASF has been receiving, processing, archiving, and distributing data of ALOS PALSAR, a fully-polarized L-band SAR sensor. Among other applications, PALSAR data are used for sea ice and vegetation mapping, ice-motion analysis, volcano monitoring, crustal dynamics, and polarimetric studies. These applications demand high data-quality and signal-calibration standards.
