XpressSAR’s X-Band Constellation’s Remote Sensing System – GRSS | IEEE | Geoscience & Remote Sensing Society

XpressSAR consists of a constellation of four (4) X-Band synthetic aperture radar (SAR) satellites capable of collecting imagery with a ground resolution of 30 meters to less than 1 meter. The satellites will operate in an equatorial orbit at an altitude of 425 km. Command, telemetry and mission image data transmission will be operated from a US-based control center compliant with international S-Band and X-Band frequency allocations for space communications.


The XpressSAR system is designed to provide multiple collections per day over the areas of operation day or night and in all weather conditions. Imagery and other radar data products will be sold to private and public-sector customers as well as government agencies. 

XpressSAR will have a range of collection modes, from small-area spotlight images with resolutions under one meter, to large-area stripmap images with resolutions of 2 to 3 meters, to an ocean scan mode that can be as large as 300 km across and 2000 km long with resolutions of 10 to 30 meters.
Radar imaging does not have a fixed resolution and swath width; it is far more flexible than optical imaging.
