Single look complex SAR data is a vital stage in the image processing workflow because it is used as the starting point for the generation of a wide variety of derived SAR products. The Sensor Independent Complex Data standard was introduced to generically describe SAR data at this stage from a wide variety of sources so that they could be processed with one tool chain. This specification is briefly summarized here and an example provided that illustrates the conversion from the Sentinel-1 native file format and metadata structure into the Sensor Independent Complex Data structure.
