Paper Abstract

"SAR-Lupe" is a fully diploid SAR satellite reconnaissance system consisting of 5 satellites with the highest spatial resolution in the world today, as far as known to us. The system was handed over to the end-user in November 2008 and is successfully working 24 hours per day, 12 months per year, 10 years long. This paper will present some more details on the SAR-Lupe system, how it came to life, and how it probably will be continued in Germany.
