We have developed a novel method by which two satellites fly in a specific formation to accomplish a SAR imaging mission. Such missions normally require too much volume and power to be compatible with a platform. However, we have devised a near-nadir viewing bi-static arrangement which cuts the power requirement down to ~100W and will fit into a standard SSTL enhanced bus. Work is in progress in designing the radar transmitter and receiver and the synchronization system needed to operate these over separated platforms.
