Signal Model for Synthetic Aperture Radar Images
This chapter introduces the SAR fundamental ideas and analysis methods employed in the subsequent chapters of the book. First, the geometrical configuration of the sensor relative to the imaged scene is described, followed by a brief overview of the time–frequency interpretation of the acquired signals. Afterwards, the principle of SAR image formation and the SAR tomography framework are introduced as the main classical processing tools.
