On 4 April 2018 the NSO KNW project NL-RIA (Dutch network on small spaceborne radar instruments and applications) started with a kick-off meeting in the Science centre at TU Delft. The meeting was widely attended by both users and instrument researchers/ developers from various institutes, companies and TU Delft. In a series of presentations and lively discussions the state of the art and new ideas for small radar remote sensing instruments were discussed.
Several workpackages of the project officially started at this event. Next step will be specialist meetings in the coming months to further identify and refine innovative ideas for radar missions.
