Paper Abstract

Long-range, wideband data-rate, satellite communication is necessary to support the command-and-control architectures evolving for a number of strategic, tactical, and remote sensing systems. High-resolution sensors which must support wide field-of-view coverage require secure high-rate data links which are resilient to jamming and other interference sources. In particular, spaceborne synthetic aperture radar (SAR) systems are attractive for applications ranging from environmental remote sensing to crisis monitoring. SAR systems can produce high-resolution imagery over protected or restricted areas, independent of local cloud cover conditions.
