Paper Abstract

SAR data is a remote sensor which produces a high amount of data. Since the transmission of the corresponding raw signals requires extremely high data rates, on-board data compression is usually necessary. The approach presented in this paper use the statistic properties of the received signal in order to improve the compression performance.
