In recent years, three-dimensional imaging by means of SAR tomography has become a field of intensive research. In SAR tomography, the vertical reflectivity function for every azimuth-range pixel is usually recovered by processing data collected using a defined repeat pass acquisition geometry. The most common approach is to generate a synthetic aperture in the elevation direction through imaging from a large number of parallel tracks. This imaging technique is appealing, since it is very simple. However, it has the drawback that large temporal baselines, which is the case for space-borne platforms, can severely affect the reconstruction. In an attempt to reduce the number of parallel tracks, we propose a new tomographic focusing approach that trades number of SAR images for correlations between neighboring azimuth-range pixels and polarimetric channels. As a matter of fact, this can be done under the framework of Distributed Compressed Sensing (DCS), which stems from Compressed Sensing (CS) theory, thus also exploiting sparsity in our tomographic signal. In addition, we address the problem of measurements affected by additive as well as multiplicative speckle noise. Results demonstrating the potential of the DCS methodology will be validated by using fully polarimetric L-band data acquired by the E-SAR sensor of DLR.
