A miniature C-band UAVSAR system has been developed at the Multimedia University, Malaysia. It serves as a test-bed for SAR experiments in remote sensing and surveillance applications. The construction and testing of the SAR sensor were completed in mid of 2010. Since then, a series of indoor and outdoor testing and measurements has been carried out to verify the performance of the system at various levels. At the end of 2010, two flight missions have been conducted: the first one at Semporna, Sabah and the second at Mersing, Johor, Malaysia. This paper presents the current progress and the future plan of the SAR sensor development in Malaysia.
