Trend of X and Ka-band Synthetic Aperture Radar Development in KAIST

Small satellites can provide the wide range of mission including space exploration, science, and earth observation. Small satellite with the synthetic aperture radar (SAR) payload in KAIST will be introduced. We are talking about X/Ka-band auto SAR, X-Band SAR with the validation by airborne measurements, and X and Ka -band SAR payload in small satellite technologies. In addition, the technological advances and available mission scope in SAR small satellites are described.
