A monostatic/bistatic ground-based synthetic aperture radar (GB-SAR) system using an optical electric field sensor (OEFS) as the bistatic receiving unit has been designed for target imaging and 2-D displacement estimation purposes. The designed system has the capability of acquiring the monostatic and bistatic SAR images simultaneously from different looking angles, enabling the displacement vector estimation of the illuminated area. The spatial baseline between the monostatic and bistatic receivers is selected according to the estimation precision analysis. Experimental results are presented to evaluate the performance of the designed system and the proposed method. The displacement estimation accuracies in x- and y-directions can reach up to millimeter level.
