Paper Abstract

After the success of Europe’s SAR satellites, ERS-1/2 and Envisat ASAR, of the German programs X-SAR culminating in the Shuttle Radar Topographic Mission (SRTM) and because of the on-going implementation of the nationally funded TerraSAR-X program the German Aerospace Centre, DLR, initiated and funded a study on future needs for spaceborne SAR-systems (SAFARI-Study). In this paper the most important results w.r.t. market needs, possible new SAR systems and required technologies are outlined.
