Dr. Christophe Magnard

Senior project scientist


The main experience of Christophe Magnard is in research, development, and implementation of techniques used to retrieve the height information from multibaseline SAR interferometry data acquired using millimeter-wave radar. In his Ph.D. thesis, he developed a pipeline to derive high resolution 3D information using multibaseline airborne SAR interferometry, and showed an application where single trees were successfully detected and characterized using such data. His expertise includes geocoding of SAR data, SAR focusing algorithms, SAR interferometry, and other SAR-related techniques. He also has a wide knowledge in many image processing techniques and programming languages, as well as in geodesy and GPS-INS data processing. At Gamma Remote Sensing AG, he is primarily responsible for developing and maintaining the Gamma Software. He is also involved in various research and development projects.
