IRS 2024 Tutorial

Fundamentals of Radar Imaging

This tutorial will introduce participants to Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) and Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar (ISAR) technologies. SAR is used to create high-resolution images of the Earth’s surface under any weather conditions by simulating a larger antenna, enhancing spatial resolution. ISAR generates images of moving targets from a stationary position, providing detailed views of objects such as ships and aircraft. The tutorial will cover basic image formation principles and showcase results from both active and passive imaging modes. This comprehensive overview is designed to deepen understanding of these advanced radar imaging technologies and their applications.
