A new scientific AO has been launched by DLR, INTA (Spanish National Institute of Aerospace Technology) and CSA (Canadian Space Agency):

Joint CSA-DLR-INTA Announcement of Opportunity

This call addresses research and development projects lead by German, Spanish and Canadian investigators. The AO is intended to explore the scientific benefits of the radar satellites TerraSAR-X /TanDEM-X, PAZ and RCM constellation, by combining different frequencies (X- and C-band), optimized revisit time and increased acquisition capacity. This satellite combination is a unique data acquisition opportunity for scientific purposes which opens a wide range of new applications, by the combination of monostatic and bistatic images.

Interested researchers shall send their scientific proposals to DLR and INTA. Detailed instructions can be found in the AO document.

Proposal submission deadline:September 30, 2024
