Abstract : The paper reflects some results of preliminary feasibility considerations for a next generation space based multi-mode SAR/ISAR system. Key element of next generation SAR systems, as currently designed for future remote sensing applications, is the active phased array antenna. Based on this antenna technology, some new operational modes are discussed, which currently are not and also in the ERS-1 era will not be available in earth observation from space.
