Platform Overview

OpenSAR is an open SAR image management and processing platform developed by Advanced Sensing Technology Center (AST) of Shanghai Jiao Tong University for SAR image reading, processing, visualizing and algorithm testing. SAR image management and algorithm testing are the main tasks of OpenSAR. OpenSAR supports importing various SAR data source such as TerraSAR-X, RADARSAT 1/2, COSMO-SkyMed, etc. The users can search and view SAR image data by this platform. OpenSAR supports registering various algorithms such as image denoising, scene classification, target detection, target recognition, change detection, etc. The users can search, configure and execute these algorithms by this platform. A complete testing report will also be provided to the users. 
OpenSAR is open for all individuals and institutions from all around the world. Please feel free to share your SAR data and test your algorithms through this platform. We also like to hear your suggestions about OpenSAR.
