SATURN aims to become the first ever Space SAR MIMO mission with CubeSats.

Description

The technology offered is called SATURN (Synthetic AperTure radar cUbesat foRmation flyiNg), consisting of a train of 3, 16U-CubeSats equipped with miniaturized SAR instruments.
The main target of the SATURN mission is to demonstrate the key technology “Cooperative Multiple-Input-Multiple-Output (MIMO) Swarms of SAR CubeSats” for innovative, low cost and versatile Earth Observation capabilities.
SATURN aims to become the first ever Space SAR MIMO mission, providing: Single Pass Interferometric Observation, Modular Performance, Constellation of Swarms.
