The Alaska Satellite Facility's archive of RADARSAT-1 ScanSAR data runs from late October 1996 to the present. The Wide ScanSAR mode has two distinct settings. The first Wide ScanSAR mode obtains the largest swath width, 526 km, by combining Wide Swath Beams 1, 2, and 3 as well as Standard Beam 7. The second Wide ScanSAR mode uses Wide Swath Beams 1 and 2 with Standard Beams 5 and 6 for a swath width of nearly 460 km.
