Abstract

Companion missions provide a path to add single-pass interferometric capabilities to existing monostatic SAR missions. Large baselines, only achievable through formation flying, are necessary both to achieve the required performance in many interferometric applications and to enable SAR tomography. Some of the main challenges include meeting tight formation flying requirements, often calling for multiple-companion solutions, and oscillator synchronization.
