    What is synthetic aperture radar?

    A synthetic aperture radar system is a radar system that collects surface images of high-resolution, using the vehicle’s motion. In the process, the microwave pulses are sent to the surface of the earth by an antenna, which is then measured to get the image.

    They can be of a single mode or also of multiple modes and make use of several frequency bands. Synthetic aperture radar can make use of many components such as an antenna, receiver, and transmitter. It is used from the ground as well as through airborne means and is highly useful for defense and commercial purposes.
