Abstract:

The Lecture Series will cover the field of airborne and spaceborne SAR with respect to its technical realisation in order to convey the participants ideas and know-how on SAR, on its capabilities and on the technology necessary for the successful construction and application of airborne and spaceborne SAR systems. The basic principles of SAR will be explained and SAR will be compared to airborne and spaceborne radar with real aperture. The influence of the antenna parameters on specification and capabilities of SAR and the advantages, necessities and limits will be considered. Digital SAR processing Is indispensible for SAR. Theories and special algorithms will be given along with basic processor configurations and different processing techniques on a hardware and software basis. The simulation of SAR-systems as well as SAR-products will also be a topic of the Lecture Series. A presentation of the present state of the art, giving examples of presently planned and realised airborne and spaceborne SAR with its foreseen applications will conclude the Lecture Series. This Lecture Series, sponsored by the Avionics Panel of AGARD, has been implemented by the Consultant and Exchange Programme.
