The capabilities of the current concept for a post-Sentinel-1 High ResolutionWide Swath (HRWS)C-band SAR system as discussed. Product-level performance analysis are given for two example applications (large scale deformation and ship detection), showing the clear improvement with respect to Sentinel-1 and exposing some of the trade-offs associated to the choice of operating mode.
