24 Jun COSMO SkyMed II GENERATION
COSMOSkyMed II is a SAR constellation which will continue the COSMOSkyMed mission improving its performances.
COSMO SkyMed Second Generation Phases B and C
Project reference period: 2011 on going
Funded by: Italian Space Agency – http://www.asi.it/
COSMOSkyMed Second Generation (CSG) is a SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) constellation which will continue the previous mission COSMOSkyMed (CSK) improving its operational performances.
In the second (B) phase BOpen activities have been focused on three SubSystem (S/S) of the COSMO Second Generation (CSG) User Ground Segment (UGS). The S/S are the nonstandard processors:
• Speckle Processor Filter (SPF)
• Mosaicing Processor (MOS)
• Interferometric Processor (INT)
The main objective has been to verify and update the algorithms used in the SPF and MOS COSMO SkyMed processors to the CSG platform and acquisition modes, and to study and develop the algorithms for a new INT processor.
In the context of the Phase C, BOpen activities have involved the detailed design and prototype implementation for the Speckle Filter and Mosaicing Processors.
