Abstract:Bistatic SAR imaging is more involved than the monostatic SAR case, because of the separation of the transmitter and the receiver, and possibly the changing bistatic geometry. For near-field bistatic SAR imaging, we develop a novel fast BP algorithm, motivated by a newly proposed fast BP algorithm in computer tomography. First we show that the BP algorithm is the spatial-domain counterpart of the benchmark o -- k algorithm in bistatic SAR imaging, yet it avoids the frequency-domain interpolation in the o -- k algorithm, which may cause artifacts in the reconstructed image. We then derive the band-limited property for BP methods in both monostatic and bistatic SAR imaging, which is the basis for developing the fast BP algorithm. We compare our algorithm with other frequency-domain based algorithms, and show that it achieves better reconstructed image quality, while having the same computational complexity as that of the frequency-domain based algorithms.
