Following the huge success of the 2019 event in Rome, the SAR Analytics Symposium 2022 will once again feature analytical thought leaders and will provide a unique meeting place for SAR service providers and applied SAR analytics consumers from across various industries.

Attendees will glean knowledge and ideas from other successful real-world analytical applications, all while sitting in a truly beautiful setting in the middle of Berlin, renowned for its exceptional variety of attractions, its flourishing cultural scene and a way of life that's both fast-paced and relaxed. Attendance for the symposium is limited to 120 people in order to provide high-quality interaction and participation. All the programme will be presented in English language.




The free an open access to synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data from the European Space Agency`s Sentinel-1 satellite since 2014, together with the launches of an increasing number of SAR systems aboard small satellites over the past year underscores the enormous role this remote sensing technology will play in the future of Earth Observation. For established SAR users, as well as organizations from across industries already benefiting from remotely sensed optical data just starting to consider adding SAR derived information to their GIS, these launches serve notice that a deluge of complex new data will soon arrive, presenting many commercial and operational benefits.

As a community of users, analysts, and solution providers, we must continue to find innovative ways to collect, process, and analyze SAR data, but even more importantly to create solutions that deliver real value. The SAR analytics symposium provides the leading thought leadership venue for participants to connect with decisionmakers from across the community, explore new trends and ideas, and transform this fast-growing and dynamic technology ecosystem.

Topics will include:

  • The present and Future of spaceborne SAR
  • Near real time SAR applications
  • Leveraging SAR derived information for Environment and Sustainability
  • Detecting change over time with extreme levels of accuracy
  • Understanding infrastructure and land displacements
  • Machine Learning and Deep Learning to enhance SAR data
  • Large-scale applications using SAR

Travel from Schönefeld Airport

From Schönefeld Airport, follow the covered walkway to the train station. Take the S9 train to S Hackescher Markt station; it runs every 20 minutes. From there, walk about 500 meters to the hotel.

Take either the RE 7 or the RB 14 Airport Express trains to Alexanderplatz station; they run twice an hour and take just under 30 minutes. From Alexanderplatz, head down Karl-Liebknecht-Strasse toward the cathedral/City Palace for a 10-minute walk. The hotel is on the right, just before the bridge. Alternatively, take the M4, M5, or M6 tram just one stop from S+U Alexanderplatz Bhf/Gontardstrasse to Spandauer Strasse/Marienkirche; the hotel is just around the corner on Karl-Liebknecht-Strasse.


Travel from Tegel Airport

Take the TXL bus outside Terminal A or B to Hauptbahnhof/Central Station. At Hauptbahnhof, take bus 245 toward Alexanderplatz and disembark at Lustgarten in front of the City Palace. The hotel lies just across the bridge toward the TV Tower on the other side of the street.

The quickest way to get from Tegel Airport to the hotel is by taxi. Expect a 30-minute journey, depending on traffic.
