Paper Abstract

This work demonstrates the feasibility of using the advanced pulse compression noise (APCN) radar waveform for synthetic aperture radar (SAR). Using a simple image formation process (IFP), we not only show that we can successfully form images using the APCN waveform, but we grow our understanding of how different combinations of APCN waveforms and side lobe weighting functions impact SAR image quality. In this paper, an analysis is presented that compares the target range point spread function (PSF) for several simulated SAR images.
