Abstract

The RADARSAT Antarctic Mapping Project is discussed. The project successfully acquired the first, high resolution synthetic aperture radar image data set of the entire Antarctic Continent. This activity was made possible by the in-orbit rotation of the SAR to look towards the South Pole and the electronic beam steering capability of the instrument to image the Pole. These attributes, combined with the ability to operate day or night and to penetrate cloud, provide nearly instantaneous snapshot of the southern continent.
