PolSARpro (Polarimetric SAR data Processing and Education Toolbox) supports the scientific exploitation of polarimetric SAR data and is a tool for high-level education in radar polarimetry.

The current version of PolSARpro is 6.0 (Biomass Edition). The software contains a collection of well-known algorithms and tools, establishes a foundation for the exploitation of polarimetric techniques for scientific developments and stimulates research and applications developments using Pol-SAR, Pol-InSAR, Pol-TomoSAR and Pol-TimeSAR data.

The tool is a standalone application that performs end-to-end processing without needing other software.

PolSARpro supports the future ESA Biomass mission and can be used to handle and convert polarimetric data from a range of Third Party Missions:
