This paper presents a distributed approach for timedomain focusing, which significantly enhances the overall efficiency by distributing the computational load across a (potentially large) number of networked computers. The system described includes the so-called master, responsible for pre-processing, the distribution of fragments of raw-data data and the collection of processed image fragments. Fragments of raw-data are passed to so-called slaves, any number of which can be connected to the master, which are responsible for the focusing itself. Master and slave actively communicate over the network to organise the entire process in a scalable manner. In this way, time-domain processing can be accelerated by a factor that is virtually inear in the number of participating slaves. This paper summarises the urrent status of software development, realised in a platform-independent way using the IDL and Java languages. Additionally, some preliminary evaluations of performance, scalability and the required network infrastructure are given. Some examples of SAR data, acquired by the airborne sensor E-SAR of DLR, and processed with the system described are shown.
