This report describes the results of the PHARUS definition stage which can be distinguished in three main parts Antenna technology study, Motion compensation study, Realisation of a SAR The antenna technology study was mainly focussed on the theory and design of patch antennae. Further the study included the theory of internal calibration of SAR systems, microwave components under pulsed conditions and measurements of phased arrays under operational conditions. The second study was focussed on finding a solution for the motion compensation in PHARUS. The study included the development of a SAR data simulator to evaluate the degradation of the Sar image by the motion of the aircraft A motion sensor package for PHARUS was proposed. For verification, this motion sensor package was used in the SAR testbed.
