2 Page 2 ENVISAT Press Day - ESTEC, 1 February 2001 ASAR, the Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar has new powerful capabilities: - electronically steered antenna - accessibility to a ~4 times wider swath and thus faster revisiting times - incidence angle range: degrees - alternating polarization mode - solid state memory It will continue the sequence of C band images taken by ERS since 1992.

24 Page 24 ENVISAT Press Day - ESTEC, 1 February 2001 Conclusions ASAR is an invaluable tool for earth observations. Its principal applications will be: - agricultural, forest, and soil moisture monitoring - detecting land use changes - responding to natural hazards - geological exploration - topographic mapping - surface deformation measurements
