S-Band Range Cross-Calbration with Ku-Band Range over the Salar de Uyuni
Mercedes Reche(1) and Monica Roca(1)
It has been demonstrated that for the proper exploitation for the
S-Band data, a calibration is required. Pildo Labs and Seymour Laxon are
presenting here a cross-calibration of the S-band against the Ku-band.
This calibration has been performed by comparing the S-band echoes against the Ku-band
echoes over the salar Uyuni, because of the very special nature of the salar returns. A
retracker suitable for the Uyuni echoes has been developed.
