The DO-SAR system consists of an airborne SAR sensor unit and ground-based image processing equipment. It has been built in the late eighties. In order to study algorithms, there was the need to generate dual frequency multipolarization data simultaneously. The DO-SAR images allow a comparison on a pixel by pixel basis. The system has been enhanced to along track and across track interferometry. The across track modes are used to generate height profiles with high accuracy. The along track interferometry can be used to estimate the velocity of targets on ground and the velocity of the aircraft. The system has been operating since 1989. It has been used overall in Europe for maritime and oceanic missions. It was used to fly over flooded areas and it provides simultaneous images together with SIRC, in Denmark and Germany. Presently, it is used to generate interferometric single path images in tropic areas in order to classify the tropical forests.
