Abstract
This paper deals with the spaceborne synthetic aperture radar (SAR) to be launched on the Japanese Earth Resources Satellite-1. The SAR is to be operated in L band. Mission purpose is mainly dedicated to geological applications. The ground resolution of the processed image is to be 18 m. Off-nadir angle is 35 deg. Key system parameter design and performance are presented.
