The initial application of ImSyn™ technology has been to SAR processing; however, it has a wide range of applications such as:
•X-ray Tomography (CAT, PET, SPECT)
•Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
•Range-Doppler Mapping (extended TDOA/FDOA)
This paper describes ImSyn™ in terms of synthetic aperture microscopy and then shows how the technology can be extended to ultrasound and synthetic aperture radar. The synthetic aperture microscope (SAM) enables high resolution three dimensional microscopy with greater dynamic range than real aperture microscopes. SAM produces complex image data, enabling the use of coherent image processing techniques. Most importantly SAM produces the image data in a form that is easily manipulated by a digital image processing workstation.
