The paper describes the C-SAR instrument for the GMES Sentinel-1 mission. After a brief introduction of the Sentinel-1 instrument requirements a design description of the overall C-SAR instrument as well as of its major subsystems (i.e. the SAR Antenna Subsystem (SAS) and the SES Electronic Subsystem (SES)), is given. The paper concludes with an overview on the predicted instrument performance.
