25 January 2008
The innovative radar imaging technique called Polarization Coherence Tomography (PCT) proposed by Prof. S.R. Cloude, which employs variation of the interferometric coherence with polarisation to reconstruct a vertical profile function in penetrable volume scattering, has been implemented in this new PolSARpro release. Further information about changes can be found in the Release Notes.

PolSARpro now offers the possibility to exploit TerraSAR-X Dual-Pol data in Single Look Slant Range Complex (SSC), Enhanced Ellipsoid Corrected (EEC), Geocoded Ellipsoid Corrected (GEC) and Multi-Look Ground Range (MGD) modes.
21 May 2007
The recent technique called Compact Polarimetry Mode and the IDAN Speckle Filter are two new functionalities implemented for the Single Data set-Data Processing.
18 January 2007
Version 3.0 of the PolSARpro software includes new compatibility to handle and convert polarimetric data from the Spaceborne Sensors ALOS-PALSAR (data level 1.1 and data level 1.5) and RADARSAT-2 Dual-Pol mode and Quad-Pol mode.
17 January 2007
The European Space Agency is organising POLinSAR 2007, the 3rd International Workshop on Science and Applications of SAR Polarimetry and Polarimetric Interferometry. It will be hosted in ESRIN, Frascati, Italy on 22-26 January 2007.
