Abstract
This paper describes an acoustooptic signal processor designed to produce real-time spotlight mode synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images for autonomous missile guidance. The processor is designed to maintain a range and azimuth resolution of 2 m. High-quality image formation results from electronic motion compensation applied to each received pulse. The processor controls range sidelobes through a weighting function applied during the correlation process, while azimuth sidelobes are controlled either by weighting or by increasing the corehent integration time.
