The Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle Synthetic Aperture Radar (UAVSAR), a reconfigurable, polarimetric L-band SAR, is specifically designed to acquire airborne repeat track SAR data for differential interferometric measurements. Differential interferometry can provide key deformation measurements, and is important for studies of earthquakes, volcanoes, and other dynamically changing phenomena.
