Paper Abstract

The user of a high resolution microwave imaging system views it as a large phased array radar. To the designer, however, it is a huge signal processing system with a multiport input (the phased antenna array) and a single output port ( the image display) . Between the input and the output, there is a great deal of signal handling and processing. Of course, there is a transmitter and receivers with local oscillators, mixers, IF amplifiers and quadrature demodulators. These are standard items required for frequency translation, amplification and demodulation; the real action as well as the intellectual depth in the creation of the system lies in the signal processing.
