Next ESA SAR Toolbox

NEST (Next ESA SAR Toolbox) is an open source toolbox for reading, post-processing, analysing and visualising the large archive of data (from Level 1) from ESA SAR missions including ERS-1 & 2, ENVISAT and in the future Sentinel-1. In addition, handling of products from third party missions like JERS-1, ALOS PALSAR, TerraSAR-X, Radarsat-1 & 2 and Cosmo-Skymed will be supported.

NEST will help the remote sensing community by supporting the handling of various SAR products and complimenting existing software packages. NEST has been built using the BEAM Earth Observation Toolbox and Development Platform and it covers the functionality of the older Basic Envisat SAR Toolbox (BEST). NEST is currently undergoing development with periodic new releases. The major new functionality in NEST over BEST will be an integrated viewer and orthorectification and mosaicking of SAR images.

NEST is extensible with an API that allows users to easily create their own plugin Readers, Processors and Writers. Developer workshops and tutorials will be planned to actively encourage contributions by the SAR community. NEST is programmed in Java and is open source under the GNU General Public License (GNU GPL).
