The work investigates staggered and random PRF (Pulse Repetition Frequency) strategies for a close formation of small Synthetic Aperture Radar (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 random pulse sampling schemes is in particular assessed for a single-input multiple-output (SIMO) S-Band constellation, whose feasibility is further analyzed in relation to the number of satellites and their antenna size.
