Multiple Input - Multiple Output (MIMO) SAR

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

This effort will research and implement advanced Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) techniques which have the potential to improve science observations with remote sensing radars. 

We will investigate emerging techniques in MIMO SAR which have the potential to improve scientific observations of important science parameters.  Some of the techniques we will explore include SAR tomography, multi-channel orthogonal waveform operation, multi-channel waveform diversity, and imaging with signals of opportunity. These techniques can potentially provide high resolution wide swath SAR images, azimuth ambiguity suppression, low PRF Wide Swath SAR, which are not currently achievable with conventional SAR systems.
