Delivery of Dual-Band Airborne SAR on-time for Christmas

During December 2021, MetaSensing was in Muskoka, Ontario, to perform the SAT of the CryoSAR System..

CryoSAR was commissioned by the University of Waterloo: it is a dual-band radar (L-band and Ku-Band of the MetaSAR family sensor) that will be used to measure the thickness of terrestrial seasonal snow and lake ice layers, and ground freeze/thaw state..

The systems will be installed on a Cessna 208. Also the MetaSAR-Pro, the full ground processor for the generation of calibrated SAR images, was delivered.

A warm thanks also to Jim Hodgson and the team at LCAS, who hosted the SAT for two days.
