Real-Time Unfocused SAR Processor For Airborne Maritime Patrol Radar
ABSTRACT The modern airborne patrol radar benefits from having a real-time SAR capability. The high-resolution coast-line imaging, and vessel identification in maritime patrol radars can be done effectively in SAR mode. Telecommunication Research Institute in cooperation with Warsaw University of Technology started in 2003 project of an onboard SAR imaging processor for maritime airborne patrol radar. Such a processor has been introduced into a new version of Polish airborne radar and has been successfully tested by Polish Navy and Polish Coast Guard.
