Background

The Broadview Radar Altimetry Toolbox (BRAT) and the Radar Altimetry Tutorial (RAT)  were originally produced by CLS  and S&T in 2006-2011 under contract with ESA and CNES (the toolbox name at the time was Basic Radar Altimetry Toolbox). Since April 2015 under ESA contract within the  SEOM program, with additional support from CNES, the current consortium formed by DEIMOS Engenharia S.A., isardSAT UK, and TU Delft is continuing the work, updating the content of the tutorial and redesigning and improving the toolbox.
