Abstract

This paper aims at identifying suitable geometrical configurations of a passive satellite radar flying in convoy with an active spaceborne SAR. The work has been performed in the frame of the SAOCOM-CS scientific investigations. It is a small satellite that ESA is conceiving to fly in convoy with the Argentinian SAOCOM 1B to acquire bistatic radar data at L-band. The applications foreseen in the paper are the retrieval of soil moisture and crop biomass. It is shown by a model based investigation that retrieval performances can be improved by combining monostatic and bistatic measurements in geometric configurations requiring very high along track and across track baselines.
