Abstract

The striking resemblance between computer assisted tomography (reconstruction from projections) and spotlight-mode (SM) synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data processing has motivated the application of projection based image processing techniques to the radar scenario. The paper proposes a method for processing of the SMSAR data for the analysis of ground target features. The technique does not require the reconstruction of the image prior to feature extraction. It possesses the inherent advantages of processing in the Radon space, in addition to the high resolution capability of the SMSAR system. Also proposed is a new, simple technique for the detection of edges and straight-line features, with simulation results.
