In the paper we present preliminary results of design and trials of Ka-band Ground Based SAR using new sliding antennas and Noise Waveforms. The SAR designed may be reconfigured for operation in different modes, such as monostatic, bistatic, and multi-position (or MIMO) modes. The system is designed for operation in both CW and pulse regimes using single and dual frequencies modes to enhance range resolution via expanding the frequency bandwidth of the signal. Potential resolution cell size at 50 m range is 15 cm by 15 cm. Results of indoor trials are presented for both SAR imaging and differential interferometry modes.
