Paper Abstract

Architecture of a real time acousto-optic synthetic aperture radar processor is reviewed and recent efforts to develop a compact processor are presented. It employs an acousto-optic device operated in the space integrating mode to compress the signal in range. Two CCD cameras are used in the time-delay and integrate mode to focus data in azimuth and to remove unwanted bias from the image.
