Abstract

The TerraSAR-X Satellite which is currently being built in the framework of a public private partnership between the German Aerospace Centre DLR and Astrium GmbH Germany carries an X-Band SAR instrument which is equipped with an active phased array antenna. Its operational flexibility allows the use of the instrument for scientific and commercial applications. High amplitude and phase stability of the radar instrument is achieved by a Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) slotted waveguide radiator and high precision Transmit/Receive Module. Additionally internal calibration hardware allows for determination of the residual drifts. A precise Central Electronics controls the radar instrument, provides an arbitrary transmit chirp and receives the radar echo with selectable bandwidth and raw data compression ratio. The ground stations multimode SAR processor is supported by a novel satellite steering law to reduce the attitude dependent mean Doppler shift. This article summarises the EUSAR 2004 TerraSAR-X contributions.
