Spaceborne Imaging radar data (C-band and L-band) from two Space Shuttle missions (1994).
Back to Products Overview
Spaceborne Imaging Radar-C (SIR-C) is part of an imaging radar system that was flown on board two Space Shuttle flights (9 - 20 April, 1994 and 30 September - 11 October, 1994). The USGS distributes the C-band (5.8 cm) and L-band (23.5 cm) data.
There are several types of products that are derived from the SIR-C data:
The following types of precision data products are available:
The following types of interferometry products are available:
Coverage Maps indicating the availability of SIR-C products are available for download.
As of June 2005, unprocessed precision and interferometry data is no longer available from the EROS archive as the SIR-C processor is inoperable and not repairable. Repair parts and maintenance support of critical system components are no longer available to continue SIR-C system operations.
Precision and interferometry data that has been previously processed can be downloaded through EarthExplorer.
