Paper Abstract

This paper comprises a description of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) processing approaches and a discussion on the processor complexity measures. The objective of the paper is to provide basic system knowledge on the design of a real-time signal processor for spaceborne synthetic aperture radar. A review of SAR sensor performance capability and general electronic processing approaches will be given first. The discussion of SAR processor complexity is divided into two areas: the arithmetic complexity and the control complexity. A generalized treatment of these subjects is provided. The results could be readily extended to special cases.
