Abstract:

Flight test of an APS-94D real aperture and coherent-on-receive COR synthetic aperture radar were conducted by the Coast Guard in three locations of southern and central coastal California between May 19-21 1976. The Geography Remote Sensing Unit provided comprehensive ground truth support coincident with radar overflights. Imagery from the APS-94D and COR radar sets was interpreted and evaluations of the target detection capabilities and resolution characteristics of the two systems conducted. The analysis included both man-made targets and natural seep oil slicks. Author
