This second part will be devoted to the development of a bistatic synthetic aperture processing method for radar imaging. Indeed, we establish various process that the received signal must undergo in order to estimate the target reflectivity in the bistatic case. High resolution image is obtained by two treatments on the table image of the bistatic received signal developed in the companion paper. The detail of the image reconstructing by a BISAR will be presented in this paper. The interest of this model is important, because it permits for a defined scenario generation of radar data which can be used in signal processing algorithms for target detection, identification and mapping. We present the simulation results for various scenes. These results are obtained by using two algorithms developed for BISAR imagery. Then we present the experimental results.
