Presentation type: Type Poster

The TUDaBo processor has been first developed at TU Darmstadt as an offline processor prototype to generate RDSAR data and validate the SARvatore G-POD service in SAR mode. It has then been enhanced to produce RDSAR data in coastal zone and SAR L1B and L2 data co-located to RDSAR. Various processing options have been implemented. Currently the software is being tested at the University of Bonn.

To allow open access of the processor results the processor is run through the ESA’s G-POD service. Currently only the RDSAR processor for open ocean CryoSat-2 data is available to registered users. SAR processing will be available after final testing as well. Further options for the extension of the processing to coastal zone and to Sentinel-3 data are foreseen.

This contribution gives a brief introduction of both the applied SAR-RDSAR algorithms and of their particular features. Further on examples and results are given to show their quality and performance in comparison to publicly available SAR and RDSAR data from other processors.
