MIMO-SAR: Opportunities and Pitfalls

  title={MIMO-SAR: Opportunities and Pitfalls},
  author={Gerhard Krieger},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing},
This paper reviews advanced radar architectures that employ multiple transmit and multiple receive antennas to improve the performance of future synthetic aperture radar (SAR) systems. These advanced architectures have been dubbed multiple-input multiple-output SAR (MIMO-SAR) in analogy to MIMO communication systems. Considerable confusion arose, however, with regard to the selection of suitable waveforms for the simultaneous transmission via multiple channels. It is shown that the mere use of… CONTINUE READING
