22 December 1997 Two-dimensional processing for airborne synthetic aperature radar
Author Affiliations +
The use of airborne SAR suffers from the difficulties raised by the nonlinearities of the carrier trajectory. An original method for motion compensation allowing the use of 2D processing for image synthesis is introduced. It provides a more elegant and more efficient solution to range migration and range versus Doppler coupling, compared to the classical range/Doppler processing. Trials with the RAMSES airborne SAR of the ONERA confirm the interest of the new method.
