Paper Abstract

An airborne X and L-band Synthetic Aperture Radar system was developed by the joint project of Communication Research Laboratory and National Space Development Agency of Japan from 1993 to 1996. It is installed on the airplane, Gulfstream II. The resolution is 1.5 m/3.0 m (for X/L-band) in both azimuth and range direction. The both SAR are operated with polarimeter capability. The X-band SAR has cross-track interferometry function. In this report we describe our SAR system, ground processing system and the performance of our system. Furthermore we will discuss motion compensation and interferogram quality.
