Satellite picture of the Lake Constance region

Digital satellite technology opens up new dimensions in earth observation when it comes to geophysical investigations, topographic and geological measurements as well as civil and military applications for the large-scale mapping of the earth's surface. In many cases, it is necessary to generate these images in adverse weather conditions both by night and day.

... Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) scans sections of the earth surface by using electro-magnetic waves, thus generating two-dimensional high-resolution images.
