dc.description.abstract The Cassini/Huygens Mission is a nineteen-year multinational project to design, construct and execute an investigation of the Saturn system, with emphasis on its largest moon, Titan. Titan's atmosphere is nearly opaque at optical wavelengths, so a Ku-band radar imaging system was required to map its surface. In this paper we describe the radar instrument, discuss some of the challenges to its design, and review its operating modes. We briefly summarize the surprises that the radar instrument has revealed while investigating Titan en_US
