A Statistical Tomographic Approach to Synthetic Aperture Radar Image Reconstruction


We formulate the spotlight-mode synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imaging problem as a maximum a posteriori (MAP) estimation problem. Our statistical perspective offers an alternative to standard SAR processing techniques by incorporating prior knowledge about either the data quality or the underlying reflectivity function. In our formulation we consider… (More)
