Paper Abstract

Analyses in this study show that measurements under currently used definitions on SAR image quality measurement may be unsuitable for UWB SAR. The main objective of this paper is therefore to propose a definition based on the shape of a single point target in a SAR image which is more suitable for UWB SAR. We use both real and simulated data based on the airborne UWB low frequency SAR CARABAS-II in experiments. The time-domain algorithm Global Backprojection (GBP) is selected for the image formation in this study.
