Title: Unambiguous Signal Reconstruction Approach for SAR Imaging Using Frequency Diverse Array
Authors: Chenchen Lin;Puming Huang;Weiwei Wang;Yu Li;Jingwei Xu
Year: 2017
Publisher: IEEE
Abstract: The conflict between range and azimuth ambiguities is a challenging problem for spaceborne high-resolution and wide-swath (HRWS) synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imaging. In this letter, a novel ambiguity resolution approach based on frequency diverse array (FDA) is proposed to retrieve unambiguous signal from that with ambiguities in both range and azimuth domains. By exploiting the range-angle-dependent property of transmit steering vector in FDA and applying the second range dependence compensation approach, echoes from different ambiguous regions are separable in transmit spatial-Doppler frequency domains. Then a corresponding transmit beamformer is designed to extract spectrum component of each ambiguous region, which can be rearranged to comprise the desired unambiguous signal. Compatible with most existing azimuth ambiguity suppression algorithms which employ the receive degrees of freedom, the proposed approach can further enhance the capability of resolving ambiguity for HRWS SAR systems, and its effectiveness is verified by simulation experiments.
