In this paper the experimental results of C-band synthetic aperture radar (SAR) system integration on an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) are shown. The goal of the presented trials was to check the capabilities and limitations of the SAR system in UAV applications. The trials were conducted with a UAV system developed and operated by the Portuguese Air Force Academy (PAFA) using a compact SAR system, named SARENKA, developed by the Warsaw University of Technology (WUT).
