The development of tomographic SAR imaging is arguably the next big step in the evolution of imaging radar systems. The value of a successful volumetric imaging system to the US Government is clear. While successful demonstrations of volumetric imaging capabilities from various radar platforms have been made recently, there remains significant issues regarding data acquisition, signal processing, and product exploitation. Under this SBIR, Vexcel Corporation proposes to build upon its phase 1 results, and address the data acquisition and signal processing aspects of SAR tomography with an emphasis on linear processing. We will propose a realistic data collection and processing approach that will robustly yield accurate and valuable volumetric SAR imagery for NGA's utility. Approaches will be demonstrated using real data over a large range of radar wavelengths.
