The information given in this paper shows the complexity of calibration under the umbrella of a high performance Reflector-Antenna-based SAR System like the SAR-Lupe in X-Band and an active on-board array SAR antenna in L-Band (CRS-1). The calibration is using new developments on Active Radar Targets (ARC) in X-Band and L-Band that was specially developed for that purpose.
