Paper Abstract

Radar imaging is a typical case where a coherent processing of the data allows a significant enhancement of the resolution. An explanation of the theoretical possibilities of the system in terms of resolution will be given first. Then the basic principles of the full scale processing are exposed : pulse compression in order to achieve the range resolution, transposition of the data followed by azimuthal correlation to get the final image. Orders of magnitude of the resolution with and without coherent compression techniques will be given along with the associated processing.
