Abstract: Space technology is currently one of the most important elements in the advance of information societies and knowledge-based economies all over the world. The European Space Agency (ESA) is in the focal point of European space activities, while the European Union provides strong financial support for the development of space technologies and applications in its flagship programs. In a domestic scope, the Polish Space Agency (POLSA) is a national aeronautics entity responsible for activities related to development of technologies of the national space sector. Recently, one of the activities which POLSA aims to establish, is the programme of building a system of satellite SAR observations dedicated for Polish users; such as administration, civilian services, and Polish scientific and research entities, that would expand potential use of satellite technologies among numerous Polish beneficiaries. In the context mentioned above, the paper describes the architecture and functional components of an exemplary satellite SAR system, along with the potential of Polish entities to develop such technology.
