16:40 PANEL: “The Impending SAR Wars: Who will prevail?”

According to industry analysis, the commercial Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) market size is estimated to exceed $3.5-4 billion (US) by 2024. High-resolution data and imagery for applications such as Earth observation, weather monitoring, biomass measurement, SIGINT, energy monitoring, elevation models, construction and ocean monitoring are expected to drive the growth opportunity for the SAR market.

This panel will focus on the changing landscape of the commercial SAR market with the goal of getting a better understanding on how current trends will reinvent space-borne commercial SAR.
