Results from an airborne SAR campaign in Summer 2017 using the multi-channel and high resolution FMCW SAR system MIRANDA35 developed by FHR are presented. On one hand this system offers a high flexibility regarding the possible swath-widths, flight altitudes and bandwidths. On the other hand the use of four receiving channels makes it a multi-purpose system, with both interferometric and polarimetric capability. For InSAR, the antenna configuration allows both cross-track and along-track techniques. Example of SAR products derived from processing the data using time-domain back-projection for various applications are given.
