The paper analyses the performances of a system concept consisting in a swarm of satellites operating in the SIMO (Single Input Multiple Output) configuration. In particular, two different data collection approaches, using constant and pseudo-random PRF, are analysed and compared for different number of satellites and various baseline knowledge uncertainties. In addition to the methods in literature, we propose a PRF optimisation algorithm based on the PSD (Power Spectral Density) of the received signal.These approaches are applied to the bi-dimensional case with a 2D simulator based on the chirp scaling algorithm used to synthesize jointly focused SAR images.
