Abstract : A review of the principles of spaceborne Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) is given, and its application in the maritime environment is discussed, with reference to several specific systems. The requirement for calibration is discussed, as are some of the more advanced techniques expected to be incorporated in future missions. The paper was written as a dissertation submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the award of an MSc degree in Microwave Solid State Physics undertaken in the Department of Applied Physics and Physical Electronics, University of Portsmouth.
