One of Europe’s most renowned radar institutes Fraunhofer FHR organizes again their International Summer School on Radar / SAR in July 2018. They offer the unique opportunity to gain an in-depth education on radar and synthetic aperture radar (SAR) techniques by distinguished international lecturers. The programme covers a wide range from radar fundamentals over state-of-the-art Radar/SAR systems to sophisticated radar signal processing techniques and their applications in remote sensing. The courses (45 students) are accompanied by workshops, which will manifest the just learned theory, excursions as well as cultural and social events, introducing you to UNESCO’s World Heritage, the Upper Middle Rhine Valley and to the famous city of Cologne.

The International Summer School on Radar/SAR takes place at Haus Humboldtstein in Remagen-Rolandseck, which is located about 15 km south of Bonn, Germany.
