Reference project: SAR-LUPE

Satellite constellation

RST was responsible for the design and the image quality of the SAR System and has contributed significantly to the successful development of the SAR system since Phase A.

Customer: OHB Technology AG/BWB (Federal Office of Defense Technology and Procurement)

Working together with major European Space Companies, German Government and Space Agencies, many projects have been sucessfully performed in the last years. This was sound basis for RST’s engagement in the SAR LUPE project (German Reconnaissance Satellite with very high resolution). RST was reponsible for the SAR system design, assurance of the SAR performance, SAR calibration and SAR processing within an European team under leadership of OHB System AG, Germany. The project was successfully completed resulting in a 5 satellite constellation providing the best spatial resolution of a satellite SAR system worldwide at this time.
