Investigation of Phase and Wavelength-induced Errors in Full-Wave Radar Tomography of High Contrast Domain: an Application to Small Solar System Bodies

  title={Investigation of Phase and Wavelength-induced Errors in Full-Wave Radar Tomography of High Contrast Domain: an Application to Small Solar System Bodies},
  author={Yusuf Oluwatoki Yusuf and Astrid Dufaure and Liisa-Ida Sorsa and Christelle Eyraud and Sampsa Pursiainen},
This paper aims to reconstruct the internal structure of a two-dimensional test object via numerically simulated full-wave time domain radar tomography with the presence of carrier wave induced (carrier-induced) uncertainty, following from a complex domain structure, and short wavelength of the signal as compared to the target object diameter. In particular, we consider an application in planetary scientific studies of reconstructing the interior structure of an arbitrary high contrast small… 


Multigrid-Based Inversion for Volumetric Radar Imaging With Asteroid Interior Reconstruction as a Potential Application
A multigrid-based inversion algorithm that allows regularization of the unknown distribution through a coarse-to-fine inversion scheme that allows recovering the interior with a single satellite recording backscattering data is introduced.
Full wavefield simulation versus measurement of microwave scattering by a complex 3D-printed asteroid analogue
Context. The small bodies of the Solar System, and especially their internal structures, are still not well-known. Studies of the interior of comets and asteroids could provide important information
Analysis of full microwave propagation and backpropagation for a complex asteroid analogue via single-point quasi-monostatic data
Context. Information carried by the full wave field is particularly important in applications involving wave propagation, backpropagation, and a sparse distribution of measurement points, such as in
A Time-Domain Multigrid Solver With Higher-Order Born Approximation for Full-Wave Radar Tomography of a Complex-Shaped Target
The results obtained suggest that, with a relevant noise level, the tomographic reconstruction quality can be improved by applying the higher-order BA in comparison to the first-order case, which the authors interpret as a linearization of the inverse problem.
Bistatic Full-wave Radar Tomography Detects Deep Interior Voids, Cracks, and Boulders in a Rubble-pile Asteroid Model
In this paper, we investigate full-wave computed radar tomography (CRT) using a rubble-pile asteroid model in which a realistic shape (Itokawa) is coupled with a synthetic material composition and
EI + FWI Method for Reconstructing Interior Structure of Asteroid Using Lander-to-Orbiter Bistatic Radar System
E envelope inversion (EI) which works on the baseband signal and therefore, can recover the long-wavelength structure of asteroid is proposed as a supplementary to FWI and shows the characteristics of good independence on the initial model and high imaging resolution.
A Comparison of Linear Inverse Scattering Models for Contactless GPR Imaging
This article deals with a comparison of three different linear models for describing the scattering phenomenon under a stand-off configuration, where the presence of the layered medium is explicitly accounted for in the scattering model.
Application of a new 2D time-domain full-waveform inversion scheme to crosshole radar data
Crosshole radar tomography is a useful tool in diverse investigations in geology, hydrogeology, and engineering. Conventional tomograms provided by standard ray-based techniques have limited
Far-Field Inversion for the Deep Interior Scanning CubeSat
A far-field model for full-wave CRT is introduced and validated numerically for an orbiting distance of 5 km using a synthetic three-dimensional target asteroid and sparse limited-angle data.
