International Coordination Group for Spaceborne Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Missions

The international suite of spaceborne SAR programs have significant overlap in their goals. There is strong consensus that closer coordination and collaboration will significantly enhance the overall utility of the present and planned systems for the benefit of all.

Since 2018, a group of several space agencies began community-wide discussions on ways to improve the international coordination of spaceborne synthetic aperture radar (SAR) missions to maximum science and societal returns.
