Canadian (CSA) and Italian (ASI) Space Agencies joint effort to stimulate the scientific utilization of Earth Observation data acquired by their respective national missions, RADARSAT-2 and COSMO-SkyMed, with an announcement of opportunity seeking for basic and applied research, development of algorithms, methods and applications.
The call is limited to principal investigator from organizations duly established in Canada and Italy only and focuses on the synergistic evaluation of both sensors. Bidders with accepted proposal will have access, free of charge, to ASI and CSA images.
The announcement of opportunity will be opened for a limited two-month period to submit a proposal until November 1st, 2013.
The expected evaluation period is 4 to 6 weeks. The proposals will be peer-reviewed by Earth Observation experts chosen by ASI and CSA.
