Paper Abstract

Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) is a technique used to obtain high-resolution radar images. It can be carried out in two ways: Focused SAR or Unfocused SAR. Although the first method gives better resolution, it requires more computational power. The second method bases on less complicated computations and can also ensure satisfactory results. Since the aircraft's path is not ideal in real situations these two techniques require motion compensation. A simple motion compensation algorithm for Unfocused SAR presented in this paper is computationally effective and gives good results.
