PHOTOMOD Radar – software for spaceborne SAR data processing
The PHOTOMOD Radar software is intended for full-scale
processing of Earth remote sensing data acquired by spaceborne radars with
synthesized antenna aperture (SAR) such as KOMPSAT-5, Sentinel, ERS-1/2,
SIR-C/X, ENVISAT ASAR, TerraSAR-X, ALOS, COSMO-SkyMed and generation of so called "secondary information products"
from SAR images, such as digital elevation models. The fact that SAR is the
active sensor makes possible reception of required measurements independently
of time, day and weather conditions.
PHOTOMOD Radar is built under module principle
and comprises a number of separate modules suitable for individual
with several default modules, needed for proper operating. PHOTOMOD Radar
software includes the following modules and processors:
module for data visualization
module for data export/import,
including CEOS ERS, CEOS Radarsat, CEOS SIR-C/X, ENVISAT ASAR, TerraSAR-X, ALOS and COSMO-SkyMed;
image processing tools;
quality estimation software tools;
oil slicks detection processor;
ship detection processor;
sea waves analysis software tool;
software tool of coherent change detection;
software tool of coherent co-registration of SAR images.
Computer configuration required for working with PHOTOMOD Radar depends significantly on type and volume of tasks which are supposed to be solved.
Generally recommended configuration for comfortable work:
Intel Core i7 processor or similar, CPU clock 3.0 GHz;
4 GB RAM at least;
Operating system: Microsoft Windows 7 x64.
Interface. Windows-based interface. There are two types of
interface - Russian and English.
The PHOTOMOD Radar documentation consists of:
On-line help. There are contextual
pages with manuals: information about interfaces, input data and so on.
User's Guide. There are PDF
files and (or) printed documentation with information about interfaces, input
data and so on.
Field Guide. There are PDF
files with processing theory, comparative analysis, results of tests and other
useful additional information.
Tour Guide. There are PDF files
with examples: execution order of data handling, test data.
