Standard for Synthetic Aperture Radar Metadata Content

The scope of this standard involves the metadata content for all airborne and spaceborne Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data. This specifies the metadata content only, not the encoding of the metadata. In particular, this standard provides the means for describing the instrument, the acquisition, and operating mode(s) and parameters, as well as the processing algorithms that have been applied to the data, as well as any parameters related to those processing algorithms. It also specifies the data storage format.
