Abstract
In August 2004 the Canadian Forces undertook Exercise Narwhal near Pangnirtung on Baffin Island. DRDC Ottawa participated in a supporting role, providing corner reflectors to simulate several crashed satellite debris fields and RADARSAT-1 synthetic aperture radar data collects in interferometric pairs and triplets. The interferometric data provided images for demonstration of coherent and non-coherent change detection. This report assesses the detection of the deployed satellite debris fields as well as scene changes on land and in the littoral zone around the time of the exercise.
