Abstract

We study the imaging and interferometric performances of a MIMO radar on board of an airship as alternative to airborne and spaceborne SAR remote sensing techniques. Four different MIMO radar arrays are designed working in L, C, X and Ku frequency bands. A frequency bandwidth of 250 MHz has been considered for the MIMO radars. The spatial resolution is 0.6 m in range and 0.3 degree in azimuth. The imaging and interferometric performances of the MIMO radar are analyzed in terms of the airship stability. A synthetic raw data set is generated assuming a target deployed on a flat area at different azimuth angle. This MIMO imaging solution is intended for continuous imaging over an area of interest.
