Microwave remote sensing to be applied in China's transport information
BEIJING, May 23 (Xinhua) -- China's transport information will be helped by microwave remote sensing, according to the Science and Technology Daily on Wednesday.
InSAR, or microwave remote sensing, provides all-day millimeter-level monitoring of infrastructure over a large area.
A remote sensing laboratory was unveiled on Tuesday by China Transport Telecommunications and Information Center (CTTIC) and Airbus Defense and Space. The two sides will cooperate to provide more accurate transport information.
Microwave remote sensing is not influenced by weather and visibility.
According to Li Yuanting, senior engineer at the CTTIC, InSAR can monitor the area of 1,500 square kilometers and record tiny changes in the shape of Earth's surface within the area.
