The Gaofen-3 (GF3) data processor was developed as a workstation-based GF3 synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data processing system. The processor consists of two subsystems of the GF3 ground segment, which are referred to as the data ingesting subsystem (DDS) and the product generation subsystem (PGS). The primary purpose of the DDS is to record and catalogue GF3 raw data with transferring format, and the PGS is to produce slant range or geocoded imagery from the signal data. This paper provides an overview of the GF3 data processor, including descriptions of the system architecture, the imagery generating procedures for different imaging modes and the output format. Some processing results will also be given here.
