      • Short History
        • Description
        • Plans for Space
          • Hydrostar
          • SMOS
        • Today: 2D-STAR
      • Lessons Learned
        • RFI

    • ESTAR
      • Hybrid
        • Real along track
        • Synthetic across track
      • Antenna Array
        • 8-element dipole stick
        • H-pol only
        • 5 sticks
        • 7 baselines
      • Objective
        • Demonstrate viability of aperture synthesis for remote sensing
        • Apply to SM and OS
    • ESTAR Hardware
    • Walnut Gulch Watershed ESTAR Image T B vs Soil Moisture ESTAR (Solid); PBMR (open)
    • Remote Sensing Campaigns
      • Soil Moisture
        • Walnut Gulch Watershed 1991
        • Little Washita Watershed 1992, 1994
        • Southern Great Plains Experiment: SGP- 97,-99
        • Soil Moisture Experiment: SMEX-02
      • Ocean Salinity
        • Delaware Coastal Current Experiment, 1993
        • Gulf Stream Experiment, 1999
    • HYDROSTAR ESTAR in Space: Proposed to First NASA ESSP Call Deployed Resolution < 30 km ( 5.8 x 9.5 m array) Deployment of Antenna (16 Slotted Waveguide Sticks)
    • 2D-STAR
      • Synthesis in two dimensions
      • Array of patch antennas
      • Multiple configurations
      • V and H-pol
    • 2D-STAR Installed on NASA P3-B Aircraft
    • SMEX-03: Huntsville, AL Above : Landsat, false color image of SMEX-03 site. Tennessee River at lower right. Right : 2D-STAR image during SMEX-03; H-pol (top) and V-pol (bottom)
    • Lessons Learned
    • RFI is a problem even in the restricted band at 1.413 GHz ESTAR image crossing the Chesapeake Bay near Richmond, Virginia showing effects of RFI RFI in zero spacing channel
    • Noise Injection is Stable
      • Used for ESTAR zero spacing
      • Employed Basic Correlator
      • Proved to be extremely stable
