A brief history of radar remote sensing

I’ve discovered Verite Timelines.   I’ve created a timeline on the history of radar based on the history section of my book.   You can view it here:

  1. Dear Iain;
    I checked your valuable timeline early this morning. It was fascinating and resourceful, however, I found that between 2000 and 2010( I mean after the SRTM mission) the slides don’t cover the developments in interferometry and polarimetry. If the presentation only tries to represent the instrument development i have nothing to say but for the development in different fields like the Lander’s earthquake by Massonnet, it seems to have a gap in this period.
    As a suggestion, you could invite the ones who are involved in this technology for sending their findings about this time, including me …
    Hope this comment will be useful

  2. Negin, Thanks for your comment. I did wonder how much to add in over the last decade. In one sense, it is no longer “history” when its so recent. In another sense, I felt there would be just too much to add, as so much has been going on in SAR (tomography, PSI, etc, etc) in this period. I would very much welcome anybody’s suggestions for key moments in SAR history for the last 10 years (and even better if you can send a photo with permission to use it).
