Abstract  Goldstone Solar System Radar(GSSR) has been played an important role in international deep space exploration and widely used in lunar terrain mapping,Mars exploration,asteroids orbit determination,deep space aircraft measurement or control,etc.We reviewed the background and summarized the present development situation of the GSSR system which is the only fully steerable imaging radar system in the world for planetary and small\|body targets.Then,we analyzed the composition of the GSSR system and its imaging principle of the near\|Earth objects in details.In addition,we emphatically introduced the new applications of GSSR in deep space exploration.GSSR has provided an inspiration for the deep space exploration in China and given a valuable reference to Lunar\|based Synthetic Aperture Radar(SAR) for Earth observation.
Key words:  GSSR imaging radar      Deep space exploration      Lunar exploration      Mars exploration      Lunar-based Earth observation
