Learn about the ground-based, ship-borne, balloon-borne, and airborne campaigns and small satellite field experiments that validate orbiting ESA EO satellites and support future mission development.
The main objective of “SARSimHT – Airborne SAR experiment to simulate Hydroterra data” was to demonstrate the image formation process of Hydroterra through the exploitation of a repeat-pass hyper-temporal airborne SAR image stack acquired over short time intervals representative of the Hydroterra mission.
The BelSAR project intended to carry out an airborne campaign for SAR bistatic interferometric measurements at L-band and full polarization, over a test site in Belgium.
SoyFLEX II 2016
The SoyFLEX II experiment was a repetition of an experiment that took place during the 2015 campaign in Germany.
FLEX EU 2014
The FLEX-EU Campaign was carried out in 2014 over an agricultural area around Jülich, Germany, Latisana, Italy and forest sites in Czech Republic
The primary goal of the 2013 joint ESA/NASA airborne campaign was to record an unprecedented FLEX-like dataset containing maps of sun-induced fluorescence, hyperspectral reflectance, surface temperature, and canopy structure.
This HYFLEX campaign aimed to deliver maps of sun-induced fluorescence recorded from airborne measurements using the approaches of the spaceborne FLEX mission.
The Dutch research team ROVE (Radar Observation on Vegetation), funded by the remote sensing organization NIWARS, started in 1974 to investigate the scattering of microwaves by crops and soils, in order to help interpretation of radar imagery.
The BioSAR-3 (BioSAR 2010) campaign was specifically planned and implemented to investigate possibilities for a future spaceborne P-band polarimetric and interferometric SAR with a life-time of multiple years.
The main objective of BioSAR-2 (BioSAR 2008) campaign was to record SAR data over boreal forests with topographic effects to investigate the effect on biomass retrieval.
The objective of the CEFLES2 campaigns was to provide key reference data and background knowledge for the preparatory phases of the Sentinel‐2 and FLEX missions.
The BioSAR campaign aimed to support geophysical algorithm development, calibration/validation and the simulation of future spaceborne Earth Observation missions.
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.
ESA's SPectra bARrax Campaign (SPARC) activity was part of the preparatory study for a proposed ESA Earth Explorer mission called SPECTRA. The objective was to collect a CHRIS/PROBA reference dataset for SPECTRA-related studies.
