Stripmap SLCs contain one image per polarisation band from one of six overlapping beams. Each beam covers 80.1 km, covering a combined range of 375 km. Pixel spacing is determined, in azimuth by the pulse repetition frequency (PRF), and in range by the radar range sampling frequency, providing natural pixel spacing.
