Following the success of the first bistatic spaceborne-airborne experiment between TerraSAR-X and FSAR carried out in November 2007, DLR has performed a second bistatic experiment in July 2008 with new challenging acquisitions. Furthermore, the existing bistatic processing chain has been updated with two significant improvements: a) clock offset synchronisation is now performed without the use of reference targets, and b) SAR imaging is done using a fast focussing technique. The new SAR imaging algorithm, based on the fast factorised backprojection algorithm, has proved very good focussing qualities while dramatically reducing (up to a factor 100 with respect to direct backprojection) the overall computational load. The new processing chain is tested using the image of the first TerraSAR-X experiment. Results of a dualpol acquisition performed during the second TerraSAR-X/F-SAR experiment and showing the first dual-pol bistatic spaceborneairborne images are also presented in this paper.
