Content Foreword

As in the previous years, this EUSAR enjoys a superior response from academia, industry and scientific institutions from all over the world. To our greatest pleasure, all important fields of SAR have been covered, including the latest results from SAR systems and missions, news from the cutting-edge in technology and signal processing, and advanced data evaluation, modelling and feature extraction, as well as unconventional applications, and not to forget interesting ideas for new upcoming projects.
All papers received prior the deadline and presented at the EUSAR conference will profit from the visibility of their contributions in ISI and SCOPUS databases, whereas the publications will be made accessible in the conference proceedings and in IEEEXplore.
