Over the past years, the use of multiple antenna apertures combined with digital beamforming (DBF) has been spotlighted as a promising solution for the fundamental restriction for high-resolution and wide-swath spaceborne synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imaging. In this paper, we present the first spaceborne experiment of a DBF technique on receive, using the TerraSAR-X dual receive antenna mode. For this experiment, we implemented a DBF module, which includes the reconstruction filter as a… CONTINUE READING
