Synthetic Aperture Radar, or SAR, has been around since the 1950's. Since that time, there was a commonly held belief that the technology was completed, mature, finished. The best SAR images that could be made, had been made. We at Neva Ridge will never hold this conviction. We know that SAR data contains a wealth of information beyond just pretty pictures.
The founders of Neva Ridge have been working with SAR data since the 1980's. We have witnessed some of the most amazing advances in SAR technology. Neva Ridge is now at the forefront of this exciting technology and is driving new and innovative advancements for its customers.
For Neva Ridge, high-resolution SAR, SAR interferometry, polarimetric SAR, change detection, stereo SAR, 3D SAR Point Clouds and permanent scatterer interferometric SAR -- this is the day-to-day vocabulary of our work place.
Founded in 2005, Neva Ridge has provided its customers with the highest quality work, innovative solutions and support. We are not only invested in SAR and related technologies, but also in the success of our customers.
