Title: Imaging for High-Resolution Wide-Swath Spaceborne SAR Using Cubic Filtering and NUFFT Based on Circular Orbit Approximation
Authors: Shuo Zhao;Yunkai Deng;Robert Wang
Year: 2017
Publisher: IEEE
Abstract: In the processing of high-resolution wide-swath spaceborne synthetic aperture radar data, the slant range history is difficult to formulate with a high accuracy over a long data-acquisition interval, and the variation of the imaging parameters over the illuminated scene makes it necessary to implement 2-D space-variant processing. To deal with these issues, first, a slant range expression is derived based on a geometry model using a circular arc to approximate the curved trajectory in this paper, which is composed of a hyperbolic term, a cubic term, and a quartic term. Then, the imaging flow based on the slant range model is proposed: a cubic filtering in range is employed to normalize the range-variant secondary range compression; the nonuniform fast Fourier transform (NUFFT) is used to correct the additional range displacement introduced by the cubic filtering and the nonlinear range cell migration (RCM) caused by the range dependence of the velocity; necessary modifications are made on the matched filter for azimuth compression to accommodate the cubic filtering in range and to deal with the high-order terms of the slant range model. The simulation results show that the proposed slant range model has a relatively high accuracy; the range processing procedure that involves an NUFFT following a cubic filtering can apply to the case where the nonlinear chirp scaling algorithm is adopted, and it has the advantage of being capable of dealing with the nonlinear RCM; the azimuth processing procedure can provide satisfactory focusing qualities over a rather large azimuth extent.
