ABSTRACT We propose a new method, based on the generalized correlation steering vector, to estimate synthetic aperture radar interferometry (InSAR) interferometric phase. In this method the generalized correlation steering vector with a large coregistration error is determined according to the joint data vector. The generalized correlation steering vector is then used to estimate the InSAR interferometric phase. The method can simultaneously auto-coregister the synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images and reduce the interferometric phase noise. Theoretical analysis and computer simulation results show that the method can provide an accurate estimate of the terrain interferometric phase (interferogram), even if the coregistration error reaches one pixel.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, an improved joint subspace projection method for synthetic aperture radar interferometry (InSAR) interferogram filtering is proposed. Benefiting from the new formulation of joint data vector, the method does not need to calculate the noise subspace dimension before estimating the InSAR interferometric phase, thus avoiding the effect on the estimation of the InSAR interferometric phase due to the inaccuracy of the noise subspace dimension. The method can auto-coregister the SAR images and reduce the interferometric phase noise simultaneously.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we propose a method based on minimum mean squared error (mmse) criterion to estimate synthetic aperture radar interferometry (InSAR) interferometric phase. In this method, the cross-correlation coefficient vector with large coregistration error is given first, and then, the cost function under the mmse criterion is used to estimate the InSAR interferometric phase. The method can auto-coregister the SAR images and reduce the interferometric phase noise simultaneously. Theoretical analysis and computer simulation results show that the method can provide an accurate estimate of the terrain interferometric phase (interferogram) even when the coregistration error reaches 1 pixel.
