Abstract:
This paper presents a new range Doppler algorithm (RDA) for bistatic synthetic aperture radar (SAR) processing in a general configuration based on a bistatic point target reference spectrum: the improved extended Loffeld's bistatic formula (ILBF). The ILBF spectrum is proved to be comparably accurate with the spectrum derived using the method of series reversion (MSR). Based on the expansion of the ILBF spectrum, a new bistatic RDA is developed to process the azimuth invariant and variant bistatic SAR data. Compared with existing bistatic RDA, the new algorithm has a simpler formulation and is able to cope with moderate or high squint bistatic SAR data. The simulated data in the azimuth invariant and variant bistatic configurations are used to validate the new algorithm.
