Short Name:

Level 1.5 of PALSAR-2 (ALOS-2) Data Processing

The state-of-the-art L-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (PALSAR-2) aboard ALOS-2 will have enhanced performance compared to ALOS/PALSAR. The PALSAR-2 is capable of observing day and night, and in all weather conditions. The ALOS-2 was launched by the H-IIA Launch Vehicle on May 24, 2014. Range and multi-look azimuth compressed data is represented by amplitude data. Range coordinate is converted from slant range to ground range, and map projection is performed. Resolution (m) Splotlight: 3*1 (Rg*Az) Ultrafine: 3 High sensitive: 6 Fine: 10 ScanSAR (Normal): 100 (3 looks) ScanSAR (Wide): 60
