Abstract

Focusing of conventional stripmap SAR data assumes a straight recording track of the sensor platform. Small deviations from that linear trajectory are corrected by motion compensation steps while keeping the assumption of a linear acquisition path. In the following, the processing of SAR data from non-linear tracks is discussed as may originate from small aircraft or drones flying at low altitude. They fly not a straight track but one dependent on topography, influences of weather and wind, or dependent on the shape of dedicated areas of interest such as rivers or traffic routes. Experimental data featuring a drop in height, a double bend and a 90-degree curve have been processed using a time-domain back-projection approach.
The data was acquired by the German Aerospace Center’s E-SAR L-band system.
