SOPA - SHARAD Open Processing Attempt
What is SOPA?
SOPA means SHARAD Open Processing Attempt. SOPA is thought to be a suite, let's say a soup, of open source algorithms for SHAllow RADar (SHARAD) low-level data processing written in python v3 sharing the same API.
The development of SOPA is still ongoing. At the time of writing the suite includes:
- data reading with common interface for:
- dRSsim, a dummy radar sounder surface clutter simulator***.
*Orbits extracted from PDS Italian data may be not sufficiently precise for data acquired before 2013.
**Orbits extracted from PDS US RDR data may be not sufficiently precise for supporting simulations and or focusing.
***The simulation principle is similar to that described in this paper.
The project SOFA (SHARAD Open Focusing Attempt) will be included here in the future in order to share the same interfaces for raw data reading.
NOTE: This project has not been developed during my work at the University of Trento, nor it has been supported by the University of Trento in any way.
Language: python v3.5+
