This paper presents a new bistatic point target reference spectrum. It is derived by using the 2-D principle of stationary phase which is first applied in the synthetic aperture radar (SAR) community. The spectrum contains two hyperbolic range-azimuth coupling terms and thus is very similar to the monostatic spectrum. It shows the characteristic of the(More)
This paper describes a recursive &#x2113;<sub>1</sub>-minimizing approach to CS reconstruction by Kalman filtering. Unlike other approaches using sparsity enforcing a priory density distributions, we consider the &#x2113;<sub>1</sub>-norm as an explicit constraint, formulated as a nonlinear observation of some state to be estimated, which we can(More)
Bistatic synthetic aperture radar (SAR) operates with spatially separated transmit and receive antennas that are mounted on separated platforms. Such a configuration enables a variety of data acquisition geometries to achieve benefits like the increased information content of bistatic SAR data. A bistatic imaging radar, which uses a special acquisition(More)
A bistatic synthetic aperture radar (bistatic SAR) is a promising and useful supplement to a classical monostatic SAR system. Using a bistatic SAR system, where transmitter and receiver are spatially separated, additional information of a scene will be provided, because the scattering characteristics of objects depends on the line of sight vector to the(More)
This paper concentrates on the Doppler spectrum characteristics of hybrid bistatic SAR experiments, i.e., TerraSAR-X/PAMIR where TerraSAR-X was steered as the illuminator in the sliding spotlight mode, and PAMIR, mounted on a Transall C-160, operated in the inverse sliding spotlight mode. The bistatic Double Sliding Spotlight (DSS) experiment has been(More)
