Abstract
The Commercial Satellite Imagery Acquisition Planning System (CSIAPS) was designed by Defence R&D Canada – Ottawa to help collection managers plan satellite image acquisition. Its strength is in its capability to integrate models of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) and Electro- Optical (EO) satellite sensors into a single system. This enables the collection manager to plan image acquisition from several different sensors at the same time, providing a comparison of coverage and image acquisition times. CSIAPS relies on the Satellite ToolKit (STK) for orbital models of the various satellites. So far CSIAPS has been configured to handle several SAR and EO satellites including RADARSAT-1, RADARSAT-2 and the ENVISAT-ASAR (SAR), as well as IKONOS-2, OrbView-3, and QuickBird-2 (EO). This report details integration of TerraSAR-X into CSIAPS. TerraSAR-X provides higher resolution single polarization acquisition (up to 1 metre x 1 metre) and higher resolution dual-polarization acquisition (up to 2 metres x 2 metres) than any of the above SAR sensors. This report will briefly describe TerraSAR-X, outlining the more then 600 modes this sensor provides. It will describe integration of the TerraSAR-X sensor model into CSIAPS, and provide validation of the results using TerraSAR-X’s own acquisition planning tool available at its website as well as using recently acquired data.
