Compression of SAR raw data through range focusing and variable-rate trellis-coded quantization

Abstract

There is an ever-growing interest in the compression of SAR data because of the huge resources required for storage and transmission. This is especially true for spaceborne sensors, given the limited capacity of the downlink channel. Unfortunately, SAR data lack the useful properties on which compression algorithms rely; indeed, these are present in the… (More)
