Specific absorption rate (SAR) Measurement System is used to measure calculated SAR and electromagnetic fields in a customer-specified frequency range. Military systems, earth-resource mapping and environmental monitoring need broad-area imaging at high resolutions. Often, this imagery obtained during inclement weather or night. SAR systems take advantage of complex information processing capability and long-range propagation traits of radar signals of modern digital electronics to give high resolution imagery. SAR complements optical imaging capabilities and photographic as it is not limited by atmospheric conditions or time due to unique responses of cultural targets and terrain to radar frequencies to geologists for mineral exploration, sea state, ice hazard maps to navigators and oil spill boundaries on water to environmentalists.
Satellite-based earth observation area witnessed unprecedented growth in last few years, it is still biased toward electro-optically resultant imagery. Although, rising levels of usage and acceptance of satellite-derived SAR data were observed. Additionally, factors such as rising demand for increased imaging technologies for remote security and sensing concerns in Asia-Pacific and the Middle East along with the requirement for continuous awareness of environment are expected to drive SAR measurement systems market. Companies are involved in manufacturing of products with advanced technology. For instance, TDK RF Solutions launched SAR Measurement System to measure calculated SAR and electromagnetic fields over a customer-specified frequency range.
