Abstract
A novel software-based synthetic-aperture radar (SAR) processor is described. The processor is capable of routinely producing a variety of data products from data acquired by either SEASAT-A satellite-borne SAR or the Environmental Research Institute of Michigan (ERIM) airborne, dual frequency/dual polarization, SAR. The SAR processor described is adaptable in that it can be configured to process imagery from any SAR system that maintains the range coding constant from pulse-to-pulse. A description of the equations that were used to implement the SAR processor is given as are details of the processor configuration. The hardware upon which the processor was programmed is briefly described, and timings for the various production products generated using this hardware, are given. Examples of the image data products are also included in the description.
