Due to the current COVID-19 situation, the format will change to an Interactive Online Lecture using the software Zoom. The students will be able to listen to the lecturer, see the viewgraphs, view whiteboard writings, and interact with the lecturer, i.e. ask questions or comment. Lecture material, schedule, and further information is provided on ILIAS; students intending to visit the lecture should make sure to register for the lecture on ILIAS.
The lecture covers aspects of spaceborne radar systems as well as an overview of new technologies and future developments. The interdisciplinary lecture is well suited for students interested in learning different aspects of the entire end-to-end system chain of spaceborne radar systems. The syllabus of the lecture are coordinated together with the tutorial and the computer workshop. All three are needed for a thorough understanding of the material.

- Theory and basic signal processing
- System design and performance estimation
- Advanced SAR imaging modes
- Spaceborne SAR missions
- Technology development
- Applications (land, vegetation, sea, ice/snow, disaster monitoring, etc.)
- Innovative SAR concepts and future developments
