Abstract
The design and development of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) system for a particular application often requires redesign of software and hardware to optimize the system performance. In addition, evaluations of the performance of existing autofocus and image formation algorithms are required for the SAR system designers to select a most suitable algorithm for a given image quality requirements. This is a time-consuming taskwithout a reconfigurable and comprehensive software package. Thus, a comprehensive SAR integrated simulator and processor software is needed to aid the system designers in optimizing all the system parameters and performance. This paper presents an integrated SAR simulator and processor (iSARSIMP) software package and the performance of three selected SAR autofocus algorithms has been evaluated as examples to demonstrate the usefulness of the iSARSIMP for SAR system designers. In the performance evaluation, simulated and actual SAR raw data were used for further analysis and comparison of the three selected autofocus algorithms.
