Synthetic Aperture Radar Tomography using pairs of crossing-track interferometric acquisitions

Master thesis subject: SAR Tomography
In this M.S. thesis we want to investigate and consolidate an alternative approach that uses a single pair of interferometric acquisitions under crossing tracks. In particular, data acquired over a forest by DLR’s F-SAR airborne system at L-band will be used to image the vertical structure of the forest. Preliminary (quick and dirty) results were already produced and presented, so that it is expected that as output of this thesis, a peer reviewed paper should be published. Aside from consolidating TomoSAR based on crossing tracks acquisitions, the work should help prepare an experimental framework with which the potentials and limitations of the aforementioned mission concepts.
