Development and experiments of a passive SAR receiver system in a bistatic spaceborne/stationary configuration
In this paper, the development of a stationary SAR receiver system using TerraSAR-X as transmitter is described. First the bistatic geometry and expected resolution are considered. After giving an overview of the hardware setup, the expected performance of the system is evaluated. The paper ends with the processed results of a measurement campaign performed in summer and fall 2009, and a comparison with the monostatic data acquired by the TerraSAR-X satellite.
