Space assets have become more affordable due to miniaturization of sensor and satellite platform technology, which allows significant reduction of launch and development costs. The first wave of new, radically smaller EO (Earth Observation) satellites were produced to enable real-time imaging with optical instruments; however, microwave remote sensing has been following the same development. Imaging radar data can be acquired in nearly all weather, day and seasonal conditions, and thus can be more effective particularly over northern and polar regions, as well as geographical areas suffering from frequent cloud coverage.
