Paper Abstract

An interferometric performance analysis for repeat-pass geosynchronous circular SAR (GEOCSAR) is presented. The analysis mainly includes the errors caused by the following sources: radar thermal noise, spatial baseline decorrelation, images’ misregistration and the atmospheric effects. For circular SAR (CSAR) imaging on the geosynchronous orbit, the altitude is very high, the atmospheric effect is severe and the high sidelobe is existed in the focused GEOCSAR signal, the characteristics of the various error sources of GEOCSAR interferometry will behave differently from the conventional interferometric SAR.
