A Switched-antenna Nadir-looking Interferometric Sar Altimeter for Terrain-aided Navigation

Abstract

Conventional terrain-aided navigation (TAN) technique uses an altimeter to locate the position of an aerial vehicle. However, a major problem with a radar altimeter is that its beam (or pulse) footprint on the ground could be large, and therefore the nadir altitude cannot be estimated accurately. To overcome this difficulty, one may use the nadir-looking… (More)
