A Study of Space-Borne Sliding Spotlight SAR Imaging Algorithm
In recent years, a new operating mode for Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) system, that is sliding spotlight mode. This mode has many advantages, such as, it has better azimuth resolution than stripmap mode. At the same time, the sliding spotlight mode has better coverage than the spotlight mode. In this paper, we present the sliding spotlight mode algorithm and analyze its azimuth resolution and coverage. The simulation results prove it.
