Abstract
Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) is getting more and more wide use in many areas. To lower the bit-flow will benefit both the communication and storage of raw data. Megellan SAR used a block adaptive quantization (BAQ) method. It estimates the statistics of the source and attempts to match the quantizer to the observed time-varying statistics. Because of its simplicity and effectiveness, many other SAR also used the BAQ algorithm. In this paper we use the polar quantizer instead of the quadrature quantizer in BAQ. Two kinds of polar quantizer are introduced and tested with X-SAR raw data.
