Abstract
Dechirping is a technique widely used to reduce sampling rate. It is well suited for the illumination of small scenes. In this paper, we extend this idea to mono/bistatic spotlight synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imaging. An azimuth preprocessor based on the spectral analysis (SPECAN) convolution is presented. The convolution overcomes the Doppler aliasing of echoed signals, while the wavenumber analytic formula keeps unchanged. Since the spatial characteristic of the signal is preserved, the preprocessing is well compatible with conventional focusing approaches, such as chirp scaling algorithm and frequency scaling algorithm The proposed method is validated by simulations in both monostatic and bistatic cases.
