This paper first summarizes the state of the art in spaceborne SAR systems and applications. The second part of this paper gives an overview of new concepts, techniques and technologies for future SAR systems, allowing an increase of flexibility in the SAR operation mode as well as a reduction in the overall system costs. Several innovative concepts and technologies as bi- and multi-static configurations, parasitic SAR, sparse aperture systems and digital beamforming will play an important role for future spaceborne SAR constellations.
