Authored by engineers for engineers, this book is designed to be a practical and easy-to-understand solution sourcebook for real-world high-resolution and spot-light SAR image processing. Widely-used algorithms are presented for both system errors and propagation phenomena as well as numerous formerly-classified image examples. As well as providing the details of digital processor implementation, the text presents the polar format algorithm and two modern algorithms for spot-light image formation processing - the range migration algorithm and the chirp scaling algorithm. Bearing practical needs in mind, the authors have included an entire chapter devoted to SAR system performance including image quality metrics and image quality assessment. Another chapter contains image formation processor design examples for two operational fine-resolution SAR systems. This is a reference for radar engineers, managers, system developers, and for students in high-resolution microwave imaging courses. It includes 662 equations, 265 figures, and 55 tables.
