Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) image intensity is disturbed by additive system noise. During SAR focusing, pattern corrections that are adapted to the characteristics of the wanted signal, but not to the characteristics of the noise, influence the spatial distribution of the noise power. Particularly in the case of ScanSAR, a distinct residual noise pattern in low backscatter areas results. This necessitates a noise-adapted radiometric correction of the focused image for almost all applications except interferometry. In this paper, we thoroughly investigate this topic. Based on signal theoretical and stochastic considerations, we develop a radiometric correction scheme. Simulations and the application of the algorithm to TerraSAR-X datatakes support the theoretical results.
