This paper describes the first experiment in bistatic high resolution SAR using a stationary receiver and TerraSAR-X as transmitter. Implicitly it also describes the first important component of a SAR sensor developed at the Center for Sensorsystems. After evaluating the bistatic geometry, an overview of the hardware setup and a short performance analysis is given. First processed results are presented from data, taken in a number of experiments performed in 2009.
