In preparation for the SAOCOM-CS satellite, which is a receive-only satellite ajoined to the SAOCOM SAR imaging satellite, an airborne measurement campaign is conducted in order to assess the relevance of different bistatic geometries and the associated issues.

In particular, the role of the Royal Military Academy is to develop requirements for the synchronisation between the transmitter and the receiver, as they will be located on different platforms. The effect of mis-synchronisation will also be modeled and evaluated.
