Abstract

This paper introduces the innovative concept of multidimensional waveform encoding for space-borne synthetic aperture radar (SAR). The combination of this technique with digital beamforming on receive enables a new generation of SAR systems with improved performance and flexible imag-ing capabilities. Examples are high-resolution wide-swath radar imaging with compact antennas, enhanced sensitivity for applications like along-track interferometry and moving object indication, or the implementation of hybrid SAR imaging modes which are well suited to satisfy hitherto in-compatible user requirements. Implementation specific issues will be discussed and performance examples demonstrate the potential of the new technique for different remote sensing applications.
