—This paper outlines the trend of signal generation in synthetic aperture radar particularly chirp (linear FM signal) generation using digital approach. A study in fundamental of FM signal and typical analog FM signal generation is highlighted. Various signal generation in SAR using digital techniques is discussed and finally the some of the digital chirp(More)
—A new Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) has been developed at Multimedia University, in collaboration with Agency of Remote Sensing Malaysia. The SAR operates at C-band, single V V-polarization, with 5 m × 5 m spatial resolution. Its unique features include compact in size, light weight, low power and capable of performing(More)
—The Linear Frequency Modulation (LFM) waveform is the most commonly and extensively used signal in practical radar system. However a compressed LFM signal at the receiver will produce the first sidelobe at a level of −13 dB to the peak of the main lobe. A weighting function is needed to apply in order to reduce the sidelobes. However, the penalty of(More)
—An experimental Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Sensor has been designed and developed at Multimedia University, Malaysia. This airborne system is an inexpensive C-band, single polarisation, linear FM airborne radar sensor. The system will be used for monitoring and management of earth resources such as paddy fields, oil palm(More)
—The Multilook Cross Correlation (MLCC) is one of the most reliable algorithms used for Doppler ambiguity number estimation of the Doppler centroid parameter. However, the existing MLCC algorithm is only suitable for low contrast scenes. In high contrast scenes, the estimated result is not reliable, and the error is unacceptable. Besides, the Doppler(More)
In 2002, the MASAR (Malaysian Airborne Synthetic Aperture Radar) project was initiated at Multimedia University (MMU), in collaboration with the Malaysian Centre for Remote Sensing (MACRES). The main objective of this project is to construct an instrument for earth resource monitoring in Malaysia. The proposed SAR system is a C-band, single polarization,(More)
