Current solution for calibrating and testing of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) is using small aircraft. This procedure wastes time and resources. In addition, aircraft does not provide reproducible conditions. The aim of this research is to develop a stable system which can be used for SAR calibration and testing on the ground to save resources and reduce time used for this procedure. A modular system was developed that enabled reduced vibration motion and accurate measurements. The vibrations of the developed rig were less than the baseline measurements (aircraft tests). It was determined that the major source of high frequency/low amplitude vibrations was the electric motor and the frame structure caused low frequency/high amplitude vibrations.
