CV - 580 Airborne-SAR, Canada
Entry ID: CANADA_CCRS_CV-580Airborne-SAR


Summary
Abstract: The C/X-SAR can provide imagery of all classes of terrain, ocean, or ice
scenes. The imagery can be compared easily with mapped information. It is
possible to monitor natural resources (agriculture, forestry, geology),
temporal variations (urban growth, sea ice and icebergs, ocean waves and
currents, shipping and fishing), and disasters (oil spills, floods, fires).
CCRS Convair 580 is a fully equipped, versatile aircraft for remote sensing.
The aircraft can be deployed from any airport with a 1520-m (5000-foot)
hard-surface runway. It has a range of 2300 km (1450 miles), or about five
hours of flying time.The C-SAR data provides an opportunity for educational
studies relating to SAR.
