Promotor:Neyt, Xavier
Funding:SPP Politique Scientifique
Involved staff: Xavier NEYT, Virginie KUBICA, Edison CRISTOFANI,
Start date:01 Dec 2008
Duration:18 months
Research unit:Radar Signal Processing

Description

The aim of the project is the development of a “proof of concept” passive SAR imaging system with a static receiver. The research activities are naturally divided in two parallel branches with strong interaction between them: the development of the synthesis algorithms and the development of the required hardware.
