Paper Abstract

This paper gives the current status of a medium resolution SAR definition prephase A study. The objective of such a novel SAR instrument is the global monitoring of land surfaces and polar region. The study was conducted in order to analyze all the possible concepts that could be compliant with this mission definition. Several trade-offs were performed in order to select an instrument concept compatible with large coverage, medium spatial resolution, good absolute radiometric accuracy, low mass and low power consumption.
