Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) is a multipurpose sensor that can be operated in all-weather and day-night time.  Conventionally, the SAR sensor has been operated in linear polarization with limited retrieved information.  In this research, we are developing Circularly Polarized Synthetic Aperture Radar (CP-SAR) sensor for unmanned aerial vehicle and small satellite for Earth diagnosis.  Comparing to linear polarized systems, the CP-SAR sensor has the advantage of compactness and low power requirement, since the transmission of CP microwave is not affected by the Faraday rotation effect in the ionosphere.  In this presentation, the applications of synthetic aperture radar images for disaster monitoring by using Differential Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (DInSAR) technique are also introduced.
