INSTRUMENTS

Explore the many instruments the European Space Agency use to observe the Earth. ESA offer data from a wide range of optical, radar, atmospheric, altimetric and gravimetric instrumentation.

a-altimeters

RA-2

The RA-2 instrument aboard Envisat acquired radar altimetry data over ocean, land and ice surfaces.

a-imaging-radars

ASAR

ASAR ensures continuity with the image mode (SAR) and the wave mode of the ERS-1/2 AMI.

a-altimeters

SIRAL

SIRAL (SAR Interferometer Radar Altimeter) is the primary instrument onboard ESA's CryoSat mission.

Campaigns

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.
