Explore the principles and applications of synthetic aperture radar

This comprehensive guide offers a solid grounding in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) fundamentals and techniques. Written by a remote sensing and signal processing expert, Introduction to Synthetic Aperture Radar: Concepts and Practice clearly explains data collection, image formation, error correction, and image quality. You will get concise descriptions of commonly used image formation algorithms, including the Range-Doppler Algorithm (RDA) and the Polar Formatting Algorithm (PFA). Continuous wave LFM systems, interferometry, polarimetry, and moving objects are discussed in detail.

Coverage includes:

  • Origins of synthetic aperture radar
  • Ranging and imaging
  • Image formation and image processing tools
  • Linear frequency-modulated chirp
  • Image formation algorithms for quadrature demodulated data
  • Image formation algorithms for dechirped data
  • Autofocus
  • Image quality and speckle reduction
  • Linear frequency-modulated continuous wave systems
  • Remote sensing
  • Interferometry
  • Moving objects in SAR
