After a long time, a new project is online: SOFA! SOFA stands for SHARAD Open Focusing Attempt. This is an old code that I used to make some sofa-spare-time experiments on the SHAllow RADar (SHARAD) data acquired on Mars.
It allows focusing the raw radargrams using different squint angles and apertures. As shown in the Radargram enhancement and target physical slope estimation page, this processing makes it possible to visually enhance radargrams and obtain further physical information on subsurface targets.
As usual, a documentation and a download page are available!
I'm pretty sure that with this piece of code you will find water on Mars!
If so, let me know from the Contacts page!
