Recently, we develop small circularly polarized SAR satellite, where the flight test of airborne circularly polarized SAR was success, and we plan to do the in-orbit payload demonstration of this circularly polarized SAR in the next step. Small circularly polarized SAR satellite is 100 kg microsatellite with circularly polarized synthetic aperture radar (CP-SAR) sensor onboard that is originally developed by Chiba University. This in-orbit satellite system has the objective to realize high level education and research on global environmental and disaster monitoring, i.e. active fault, landslide, earthquake, volcanic eruption etc, and data analysis.
