We report measurements results of the Digital Beamforming Units (DBFUs) in the frame of the DLR funded "High-Resolution-Wide-Swath (HRWS) demonstrator" project. The demonstrator is in preparation of a German "TerraSAR-X Next Generation" candidate earth observation mission which bases on Digital Beamforming (DBF) technology.
