Paper Abstract

There has been little interest in the information associated with the shadows in high resolution Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images. In this paper we give an algorithm for the reconstruction of an object's shape from the shadows cast by the object in a sequence of SAR images. The algorithm is a back-projection type algorithm based on the intersection of solids. The effects of diffraction and synthetic aperture occlusion on SAR shadow resolution are also addressed.
