In this paper, we analyze the resolution of bistatic synthetic aperture radar (BISAR) imaging for stationary objects.
In particular, we analyze the resolution of images reconstructed by the method of a filtered backprojection
inversion, an inversion method which is derived from a scalar wave equation model. In this context we are able
to account for the effects of antenna beam patterns and arbitrary flight trajectories. The analysis is done by
examining the data collection manifold for different experiment geometries and system parameters.
