Abstract:

This report describes the design and realisation of a real-time range azimuth compression module, the so-called Fast Convolution Module, based on the fast convolution algorithm developed at TNO-FEL. The module will be part of a Real-Time SAR Processor for Air Force applications. Range and azimuth compression, as well as the Corner Turning Memory, are the critical steps within the SAR processing chain. The result of this project, a tested hardware module, shows the feasibility of the technological concept of the Fast Convolution Module. The module is tested in the Real-Time SAR Testbed environment, that has been developed at TNO-FEL. The realisation of this module is an important step in the realisation of a demonstrator Real-Time SAR Processor.
