With over 16 years experience in the field of SAR, we are involved in a wide range of activities related to Synthetic Aperture Radar, from systems design to interferometric applications such as displacement measurements and tomography.

In the field with our K-SAR

Field measurements using the C-band K-SAR system developed by Kepler; Alexandra bridge, Ottawa

Kepler develops space-based Earth Observation applications together with CSA (Canadian Space Agency), ESA (European Space Agency), DLR (German Space Center), CCMEO (Canada Centre for Mapping and Earth Observation), AAFC (Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada), provincial governments and private users.

To promote InSAR, we are involved in engaging the user community, participating to action groups such as the task force for the definition of the first European Ground Motion Service.

Presently, within ESA’s Climate Change Initiative – Permafrost  ( http://cci.esa.int/Permafrost ), as part of the IPA (International Permafrost Association) Action Group Rock Glacier Inventories and Kinematics (https://ipa.arcticportal.org/), we are working with the World Meteorological Association ( https://public.wmo.int/en/programmes/global-climate-observing-system ) to evolve a new ECV (Environment Climate Variable) measure among the existing ones ( https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/gosic ).
This new ECV will supplement the existing “Depth of active layer (m)” and “Permafrost temperature (K)” ECVs and is developed within the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS https://gcos.wmo.int/en/home ), being named “Rock Glaciers Kinematics”.
