Paper Abstract

This work deals with the development of Kronecker products algorithms for fast synthetic aperture radar (SAR) image formation operations. A methodology has been developed to serve as a tool aid in the analysis, design, and efficient implementation of one-dimensional and two-dimensional fast Fourier transform (FFT) algorithms prevalent in SAR image formation operations with the idea in mind of reducing the computational effort and improving the hardware implementation process for real time on board SAR imaging applications. Kronecker products algebra, a branch of finite dimensional multilinear algebra, has been demonstrated to be a useful tool aid in the development of fast algorithms for unitary transformations and in the identification of similarities and differences among FFT computational frameworks.
