The paper describes the basic components of MirrorSAR and explains how bi- and multistatic SAR acquisitions are achieved by shifting only minimal functionality to the receive satellites. It shows that synchronization is not required or reduced in complexity by a MirrorLink. The MirrorLink forwards the ground reflected radar signal from the receiving satellites in a space transponder manner to the transmit satellite. Several options for the MirrorLink are discussed. In MirrorSAR, a number of satellites enable the acquisition of dual- or multi-baselines in a single-pass. The paper discusses several application examples where MirrorSAR eases the overall system complexity, the data acquisition and improves the SAR product quality. An interferometric SAR application example is discussed in more detail.
