During the summer of 2009, the Characterization of Arctic Sea Ice Experiment 2009 (CASIE-09) operated a small, unmanned aircraft system (UAS) over the Arctic Ocean for a number of long-distance flights from Svalbard Island. In addition to other instruments, the UAS carried a small C-band synthetic aperture radar (SAR) known as MicroASAR to image sea ice roughness at 1 m resolution. This paper briefly describes the SAR, its role in CASIE-09, and presents sample SAR image results. Index Terms-sea
