Title: Spatial Resolution Analysis for Ultrawideband Bistatic Forward-Looking SAR
Authors: Dong Feng;Daoxiang An;Xiaotao Huang
Year: 2017
Publisher: IEEE
Abstract: The ultrawideband (UWB) bistatic forward-looking synthetic aperture radar (BFSAR) can realize the high-resolution imaging in the forward direction of the transmitter/receiver, so it has significant applications in both civil and military fields. However, compared to the general narrowband side-looking bistatic synthetic aperture radar systems, the UWB BFSAR systems have larger fractional signal bandwidth and more special acquisition geometry, which will affect the behavior of spatial resolutions. Current methods for spatial resolution analysis of the UWB BFSAR are unsuitable because they do not consider the effects of these two special issues. This letter analyzes the special behavior of spatial resolutions in the UWB BFSAR, and the straightforward gradient method is utilized and extended based on the analysis to calculate the spatial resolutions. The theoretical analysis shows that the range resolution can be calculated by the traditional gradient method directly but the Doppler resolution should be calculated by the extended method. Simulated results verify the correctness of the theoretical analysis and the validity of the proposed method.
