The Brazilian-German MAPSAR (Multi-Application Purpose SAR) mission is a proposal for a lightweight and innovative L-band SAR sensor, based on INPE´s Multi-Mission Platform (500 kg class spacecraft) for Earth observation. The main mission objectives are the assessment, management and monitoring of natural resources. The feasibility Phase A study has already been finished in June 2006 and will be presented by the end of this year. The key component of the SAR instrument is the SAR antenna, which is designed as a parabolic reflector antenna with an elliptical rim. L-band (high spatial resolution, quad-pol) has been selected for the SAR sensor as optimum frequency accounting for the majority of Brazilian and German user requirements.
