Project Description

The aim of the project is to accurately validate and characterise the expected performance of the Sentinel-3 SRAL SAR altimetric products over the open ocean and coastal zone, and then to propose and evaluate enhancements to the current baseline SRAL SAR data processing in order to reach improved performance over open ocean and coastal regions. isardSAT is in charge of developing and implementing the Level-1 SAR processor, including further updates and enhancements, providing the Level-1B test data sets. isardSAT will exploit its knowledge to provide support to the adaptation of the retracker model for Sentinel-3 on the Level-2 processor.
