GAMMA SAR Software


GAMMA provides licenses for its user-friendly and high quality software to support the entire processing from SAR raw data to products such as digital elevation models, deformation, and landuse maps. The software is grouped into various packages:

Modular SAR Processor


SAR data processing

Interferometric SAR Processor


Interferometric SAR processing

Differential Interferometry and Geocoding


Differential interferometric SAR processing and terrain geocoding

Interferometric Point target Analysis


Point target, persistent scatterer analysis

Land Application Tools


Classification, filtering, extraction of subregions, statistical tool

Geocoding Software


Terrain geocoding and image registration (special collection of tools from ISP and DIFF&GEO for users not interested in interferometry)

 In addition to the MSP a motion compensation package (MOCOM) is available for range compressed data.

For visualization and image export of intermediate and final image products the GAMMA Software offers a set of tools included in the DISP package. The DISP package is bundled with any of the individual GAMMA Software packages.

The packages can be purchased singularly or be combined depending on the user’s needs and applications. A set of combinations with respect to specific processing chains, data products and applications are

Binary as well as source code licenses are available. For Universities a discount on the total price applies. An evaluation license of the software is available upon request. A one year maintenance is included in the license fee.

Maintenance of the software includes software updates and technical support by e-mail.

Gamma Software runs on Solaris, Linux, Win32, and OS-X. If your OS is not listed here, please contact us.


Ad hoc training can be ordered, either on an individual basis or for groups. In addition, training courses on SAR interferometry and on the use of the GAMMA Software are offered on a regular basis. Training is held by GAMMA personnel.
