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.
