NICT (National Institute of Information and Communications Technology, Japan) have developed a high performance airborne SAR system (Pi-SAR2) since 2006, as a successor to the Pi-SAR (X-band). Pi-SAR2 has polarimetric and interferometric functions with high spatial resolution of 0.3-0.6 m in along track (azimuth) direction and 0.3-0.5 m in cross track (slant-range) direction at X-band. In this paper we report the ground based calibration experiment using active radar calibrators (ARC) and corner reflectors (CR) in conjunction with the Pi-SAR2 test flight.
