The work investigates staggered and randomic PRF strategies for a close formation of small SAR satellites operating in a multistatic configuration. The satellites are positioned within a fraction of the along-track critical baseline, hence allowing for the application of Displaced Phase Center image formation approaches. The performance of regular and randomic pulse sampling schemes is in particular assessed for an MISO S-Band constellation, whose feasibility is further analyzed in relation to the number of satellites and their antenna size.
