Cosmo-SkyMed

The COSMO-SkyMed system is a constellation of four radar satellites for Earth observation for dual (civil and military) use. Its purpose is to monitor the globe for the sake of emergency prevention (management of environmental risks), strategy (defense and national security), and scientific and commercial purposes, providing data on a global scale. The radar will enable earth surveying in X-band, 3.1 cm wave length, modified radiation polarization - HH, VH, HV, VV.
Multi-polarimetric and multi-temporal capabilities enable many civilian and advanced defense applications. The sensor can acquire images of the earth in ScanSAR mode (large coverage with a medium to coarse spatial resolution) or in Stripmap mode (medium coverage with a fine resolution) or Spotlight mode (small coverage with metric resolution).

Flexible, multi-mode SAR sensor
