This paper outlines the concept and operation scheme of SBK, a multiplatform Ku-band SAR sensor that is the on board segment of QUASAR (Quicklook Unmanned Aerial SAR), the main project in Synthetic Aperture RADAR for small platforms carried out by the Spanish National Institute for Aerospace Technology. The first implementation, SBK P1 in pod, is planned to be operative in 2011. Then, it will be integrated in a subMALE UAV and finally upgrade to SBK P2 adding gyrostabilization, data link and real time image formation.
