Bistatic synthetic aperture radar (SAR) is an extension of traditional monostatic SAR, which increases the flexibility in designing SAR missions. We describe a scheme for the computation of integration time and azimuth coverage of bistatic SARs based on space-time diagrams. A classification of bistatic SAR configurations is introduced in terms of size and velocity on the ground of antenna footprints. Bistatic SAR regimes are also identified.

Abstract

Bistatic synthetic aperture radar (SAR) is an extension of traditional monostatic SAR, which increases the flexibility in designing SAR missions. We describe a scheme for the computation of integration time and azimuth coverage of bistatic SARs based on space-time diagrams. A classification of bistatic SAR configurations is introduced in terms of size and velocity on the ground of antenna footprints. Bistatic SAR regimes are also identified.
