A RELAX Based Method for Spotlight SAR Imaging
The imaging problem of spotlight SAR is converted to a parameter estimation problem of several monochromatic signals in additive white Gaussian noisy condition in this paper. Moreover, a spotlight SAR imaging algorithm based on RELAX is presented in detail. Traditional polar format algorithm and the presented method are applied to spotlight SAR imaging respectively, and the imaging results are compared. Simulation results show that the polar format algorithm doesn’t give satisfactory imaging results, while the proposed method adapts the noisy environment better and obtains better results.
