In the paper the potential of passive radar systems using geostationary satellites as transmitter is discussed. Fields of application intended in this project are radar imaging and tracking of moving platforms like planes, ships and trucks, respectively. The paper gives an overview of the state of the art of other research institutes and describes the status and the program of the new project recently launched at ZESS. Finally an outlook of future analysis of the recorded signals and experimental verification of the applications is given.
