Author Affiliations +
This paper is concerned with suppressing multiple wide-bandwidth radio frequency interference (RFI) sources in SAR systems. A coherent processing of passive radar (sniff) data is presented to diminish the effects of wide-bandwidth as well as narrow-bandwidth RFI sources in the active radar data that are collected by a SAR system. The approach is based on a two-dimensional adaptive filtering of the active SAR data using the passive sniff data as the reference signal. A similar mathematical (signal) model and processing is also utilized to suppress self-induced resonance (SIR) signals that are generated by the interaction of the radar-carrying platform and the transmitted radar signal. Results are shown using the Army Research Laboratory (ARL) low-frequency, ultra-wideband (UWB) imaging radar (Boom-SAR).
