For a second time this year, the Spaceborne Imaging Radar-C/X-Band Synthetic Aperture Radar instrument flies aboard the space shuttle. The instrument combines JPL's Spaceborne Imaging Radar-C with a German-Italian system called X-Band Synthetic Aperture Radar, which uses a higher-frequency radar than the American instrument.

Images from the instrument, which flies until October 11, are still being processes and analyzed in 2002.
