Airborne Ice and Snow Radars (and other EM Sensors)

BAS will present their future aspirations for antenna, transmission, reception and data logging technologies that will facilitate their future experimental programme. BAS uses airborne radar to study the Antarctic ice sheets and is now working on airborne radar to survey the top hundreds of metres of snow and ice to a resolution of 2cm. This is a 2 to 8GHz CW system employing digital and RF technology to achieve frequency agility. BAS also deploys various Electromagnetic (EM) sensors for sea ice measurement that present unique technical challenges.
