The CASA Aircraft used for the AGRISAR 2006 Campaign

The AGRISAR 2006 campaign, carried out between 18 April and 2 August 2006, was established to address important specific programmatic needs of Sentinel-1 and -2:

  • To assess the impact of Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 sensor and mission characteristics for land applications (land use mapping, parameter retrieval).
  • To provide a basis for the quantitative assessment of sensor or mission trade-off studies, e.g. spatial and radiometric resolution, revisit time
  • Simulate Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 image products over the land


What was the outcome of AGRISAR 2006?

The main outcomes of the AGRISAR 2006 project were:

  1. Preliminary analysis show a high potential of using the acquired data for further studies
  2. Multi-disciplinary approaches show a high potential of new product development
  3. SAR: depending on the application either C-band or L-band frequency is preferable
