Summary of Proposal MTH2907

TitlePoint Identification in SAR Signals and Highly Accurate Positioning
Investigator König, Rolf - Deutsches GeoForschungsZentrum GFZ , Department 1: Geodäsie und Fernerkundung
Team Member
Prof. Hellwich, Olaf - Technische Universität Berlin, Computer Vision and Remote Sensing
Dr. Guillaso, Stephan - Technische Universität Berlin, Computer Vision and Remote Sensing
Mr. Saeed, Adnan - Technische Universität Berlin, Computer Vision and Remote Sensing
SummaryUsing a Pair Artificial Corner Reflector (CR)attached together facing ascending and descending orbit of TSX, centimeter level 3-D pixel localization accuracy is to be achieved. Multiple bi-directional of CR’s are to be installed at GFZ compound Potsdam which is accessible with relative ease. The localization results are to be compared with precise GPS based and other geodetic measurements thus assuring Millimeter level accuracy in TerraSAR-X imaging. Funding will be requested from DFG for two additional researchers. The named persons are funded already. Hardware costs (bi-dir CRs) will be carried by GFZ and TUB. Local geodetic measurements are carried by GFZ.
