Abstract
The initial steps taken by a radar designer to evaluate new design concepts or to review designs from outside sources involve iterative use of first-order analysis algorithms to couple high-level functional descriptions of the radar to viable system specifications. These analyses provide the foundations for detailed design studies or for detailed performance predictions. This report and its companion Excel spreadsheet provide a first-order analysis package for the current generation of active-array space-based SAR systems. The analysis package covers aspects of orbit parameter selection, observation geometry, active array design, image properties and data handling and data link requirements. Analysis procedures that use multiple, systematic, model trials are discussed.
