Installation of the AKMS SAR Corner Reflectors

Two (2) new SAR Triangular Trihedral Corner Reflectors (CR) of the CyCLOPS Permanent Segment (PS) with the code names AKMS01 and AKMS02 have been successfully installed. AKMS01 and AKMS02 permanent CRs are located in Akamas Peninsula and are currently oriented towards the ascending and descending passes of the Copernicus Sentinel-1 constellation. The CRs were attached to shallow bedrock (over a thin layer of concrete) through specifically designed long anchors and high-quality epoxy resin.
