Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (IFSAR) - definition(s)

IFSAR - [remote sensing] Acronym for interferometric synthetic aperture radar. A dual-antenna radar sensor mounted on an airborne or space-borne platform that collects a remotely sensed radar image, called an interferogram. There is a measured energy shift between the signals received by each antenna, and this interference can be colorized to measure elevation or changes in the topography on the earth's surface.
