Spaceborne SAR Signal Processing Algorithm Considering the Coherence


Article Preview

In the introduction to this dissertation, one flowing algorithm is proposed in this paper considering the SAR Interferometry. The basic idea of this algorithm is that we can adopt the same imaging parameters, such as the doppler centroid, etc. when converting the two raw data from signal information to images for Interferometry. ERS-1/2 Tandem 0 level data in Zhangbei have been tested in this artic, the better phase fringes could be acquired compared with standard 1 level SLC data provided by ESA process station. The experimental result indicates the proposed method is highly desirable for research and application for InSAR technology.
