The SOSTAR-X system is an advanced airborne ground surveillance radar system. This multi-mode radar demonstrator allows the acquisition of highly squinted and long range data in several SAR, classification and MTI modes, as well s in simultaneous SAR/MTI modes. Furthermore, tracking functionalities are included. The radar development was shared between the SOSTAR-X companies Dutch Space (NL), EADS (D), Galileo Avionica (I), Indra Sistemas (E) and Thales (F). flight trials on a Fokker F100 aircraft were performed in 2006 and 2007. This paper presents a description of the SOSTAR-X prime item and radar sensor integration, the radar system integration and tests as well as the aircraft installation and flight trials.
