The BelSAR airborne campaign was set up to prepare for future bistatic and interferometric SAR missions. The objective was to acquire L-band, full-polarimetric signatures by two airplanes, flying in various bistatic and interferometric geometries. The scientific scope was focused on agriculture and soil humidity, and the region of interest was part of the Belgian BELAIR HESBANIA test site, located close to Gembloux. Five flights took place between May and September 2018. Ground devices were deployed and ground measurements were obtained simultaneously to the imaging passes. Preliminary InSAR processing results are presented here.
