Synthetic aperture radar

View this topic in
Synthetic-aperture radar (SAR) is a form of radar whose defining characteristic is its use of relative motion between an antenna and its target region to provide distinctive long-term coherent-signal variations that are exploited to obtain finer spatial resolution than is possible with conventional beam-scanning means.

It is based on a new model for polarimetric SAR data and the use of B-Spline active contours for image segmentation. In order to detect the boundary for a region, an initial B-Spline curve is specified and the proposed algorithm uses a deformable contours technique to find the boundary. In doing this, the statistical parameters of the polarimetric G^H model for the data are estimated, in order to find the transition points between the region being segmented and the surrounding area. This algorithm can be regarded as a local one, in the sense that it works on the region to be segmented instead of on the whole image

  • Validation of alpine glacier velocity measurements using ERS Tandem-Mission SAR data

    Five ascending and four descending ERS-1/2 tandem-mode synthetic aperture radar (SAR) interferometry (InSAR) data pairs with useful scene coherence are used to measure the surface flow field of an alpine glacier in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The topographic component of the interferogram phase is calculated by using a digital elevation model (DEM) of the terrain and precise orbit data to reconstruct the ERS InSAR imaging geometry. The DEM is derived from the Canada Centre for Remote Sensing (CCRS) Convair-580 airborne SAR interferometer. As dual line-of-sight (LOS) measurements are not sufficient to completely resolve the three-dimensional (3D) surface flow field, several different assumptions for determining the missing variables are considered, and the 3D surface flow field is estimated by using single and dual LOS measurements. The InSAR results agree with historic and coincident displacement measurements made using traditional point surveying techniques.

  • Three-dimensional synthetic aperture radar imaging of a fir tree: first results

    A three-dimensional (3D) inverse synthetic aperture radar (ISAR) imaging experiment on a fir tree is described. Radar measurements on single trees under laboratory conditions can be performed in the scatterometric, with no aperture synthesis, and in the imaging (SAR) mode. Imaging an entire tree requires the use of a wideband radar and a two-dimensional (2D) aperture which may be synthetic or real. A 3D ISAR image can be obtained by processing- coherently the backscattered fields as a function of the frequency and two rotation angles about axes which are mutually orthogonal. With such a system, and by conveniently processing the acquired data, the major scatterers and their positions within the tree volume can be identified with a high spatial resolution. The obtained 2D and 3D polarimetric ISAR images show that this new technique can be used to support the understanding of the interaction of electromagnetic waves with natural targets and provide the basis for the validation and verification of existing models.

  • Dual-frequency, dual-polarization microstrip antenna development for high-resolution, airborne SAR

    The paper reviews recent work at the Technical University of Denmark, aimed at developing a true shared aperture, i.e. dual-frequency (L- and C-band), wideband, dual-linear polarization microstrip antenna array for use in the next-generation of the Danish high-resolution, airborne, polarimetric synthetic aperture radar (SAR) system. The dual-frequency array concept adopted relies on the use of probe-fed perforated, stacked patches for L-band (1.2-1.3 GHz). Inside these perforations probe-fed, wideband stacked microstrip patches for C-band (4.9-5.7 GHz) are placed. Measured impedance and radiation pattern properties for this structure are reported.

  • Multibaseline InSAR DEM reconstruction: the wavelet approach

    Multibaseline synthetic aperture radar (SAR) interferometry can be exploited successfully for high-quality digital elevation model (DEM) reconstruction, provided that both noise and atmospheric effects are taken into account. A weighted combination of many uncorrelated topographic profiles strongly reduces the impact of phase artifacts on the final DEM. The key issue is weights selection. In the present article a wavelet domain approach is proposed. Taking advantage of the particular frequency trend of the atmospheric distortion, it is possible to estimate, directly from the data, noise and atmospheric distortion power for each interferogram. The available DEMs are then combined by means of a weighted average, carried out in the wavelet domain. This new approach provides a valuable tool not only for DEMs combination (improving accuracy), but for data evaluation and selection, since the phase error power is estimated for each interferogram. Results obtained using simulated and real data (ERS-1/2 TANDEM data of a test area around the Etna volcano, Sicily) are presented.

  • Unsupervised classification using polarimetric decomposition and the complex Wishart classifier

    The authors propose a new method for unsupervised classification of terrain types and man-made objects using polarimetric synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data. This technique is a combination of the unsupervised classification based on polarimetric target decomposition, S.R. Cloude et al. (1997), and the maximum likelihood classifier based on the complex Wishart distribution for the polarimetric covariance matrix, J.S. Lee et al. (1994). The authors use Cloude and Pottier's method to initially classify the polarimetric SAR image. The initial classification map defines training sets for classification based on the Wishart distribution. The classified results are then used to define training sets for the next iteration. Significant improvement has been observed in iteration. The iteration ends when the number of pixels switching classes becomes smaller than a predetermined number or when other criteria are met. The authors observed that the class centers in the entropy-alpha plane are shifted by each iteration. The final class centers in the entropy-alpha plane are useful for class identification by the scattering mechanism associated with each zone. The advantages of this method are the automated classification, and the interpretation of each class based on scattering mechanism. The effectiveness of this algorithm is demonstrated using a JPL/AIRSAR polarimetric SAR image.

  • Evaluation of interpolation kernels for SAR interferometry

    Interpolation is required in interferometric synthetic aperture radar (SAR) processing for coregistration of complex signals. Straightforward system theoretical considerations provide objective figures of merit for interpolators, such as interferometric decorrelation and phase noise. Theoretical and simulation results are given for nearest neighbor, piecewise linear, four- and six-point cubic convolution, and truncated sinc kernels.

  • Orientation angle preserving a posteriori polarimetric SAR calibration

    Fully polarimetric synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data analysis has found wide application for terrain classification, land-use, soil moisture, and ground cover classification. Critical to all analyses and applications is accurate calibration of the relative amplitudes of and phases between the various polarimetric channels. Here we propose an a posteriori method imposing only the weakest of constraints, scattering reciprocity, on the polarimetric data. Calibration parameters are self-consistently estimated from full 4/spl times/4 polarimetric covariance matrices. Whilst the complete set of calibration parameters is underdetermined, we give several reasonable heuristic methods to provide a complete calibration. Stronger constraints reduce the number of independent parameters and provide an overdetermined set of equations but at a cost - the loss of polarimetric fidelity when the underlying assumptions are violated. Without recourse to in situ calibration targets, the extent of the polarimetric distortion that results from polarimetric calibration remains unknown. We apply our new method to simulated data, anechoic chamber data and polarimetric SAR imagery. We also present comparisons with alternate calibration methods and different approximate solutions of the new technique.

  • Incorporation of polarimetric radar images into multisensor data sets

    A technique is presented for registering polarimetric synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data to other aircraft and spaceborne data sets. Resampling is done on the full Stokes matrix, allowing full polarization synthesis on the coregistered data set. Analysis of data acquired over Pisgah Crater in the Mojave Desert, CA, as part of the Mojave Field Experiment shows that the resampling does not seriously affect the pedestal heights of polarization signatures or estimates of RMS heights for smooth to moderately rough surfaces.<<ETX>>
