SAR principles

  • Marwan Younis (DLR)


Starting from the functionality of a conventional Radar (Radio Detection and Ranging) the principle of Side Looking Radar (SLAR) is explained. But SLAR require a very long antenna to yield a reasonable resolution; which leads to the idea of forming a synthetic aperture using a moving platform and a succession of pulses. The lecture explains the principle of SAR operation together with a derivation of its basic properties. The emphesize is to establish a good basic understanding, while avoiding many equations and details.
