Textversion av intervju med personal på FOA

Abstract [en]

The group interview treats the experiences of AndersGustavsson, Staffan Jonsson, Anders Nelander, and Hans Ottersten working for the Swedish National Defence Research Institute (FOA) on satellite remote sensing technology. Hans Ottersten began working on remote sensing in 1961, and Staffan Jonsson joined in 1965 to work on high-resolution radar applications technology. Anders Nelander began working on coherent radar signal processing in 1975. Anders Gustavssonjoined FOA in 1982 to work on radar for the identification of small objects, e.g. growlers, in the Arctic. The interview focuses on FOA’s shifting uses, and platforms, for remote sensing. The interview makes reference to how the term “remote sensing”was first used and how pioneering decision-makers, like Torleiv Orhaug, sought to build up expertise at FOA. Through competition with the Swedish Space Corporation in the Remote Sensing Committee, FOA over time shifted its emphasis on remote sensing from optical to radar.
