The TerraSAR-X Staring Spotlight Mode Concept

  title={The TerraSAR-X Staring Spotlight Mode Concept},
  author={Josef Mittermayer and Steffen Wollstadt and Pau Prats and Rolf Scheiber},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing},
The paper investigates the possibility to enhance the TerraSAR-X (TSX) azimuth resolution by means of staring spotlight imaging in combination with an extended azimuth pattern steering. The current TSX spotlight modes are briefly reviewed, and the azimuth steering limitations are discussed. Based on a realistic TSX azimuth pattern simulation and performance estimation using a Kepler orbit and the WGS84 reference ellipsoid, the key performance parameters are estimated for an increasing azimuth… CONTINUE READING
