Processing of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data can be implemented either in space domain or in transformed (spatial) frequency domain. The latter is the usual technique, due to availability of Fast Fourier Transform codes. However, for one bit coded signals direct space domain processing may be a very convenient alternative. It is noted that one bit coding does not impair amplitude and phase information, it the signal to noise ratio is small; and that processing of one bit coded sequences can be conveniently implemented by simple digital integrated circuits. A processor for one-bit coded SAR data has been designed for real-time operations: simulation and expected performance of this processor is presented.
