Abstract: Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) is a radar imaging mode that maps radar reflectivity of the ground. This is an important earth resource monitoring and analysis tool in the civilian and government communities, and an important intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) tool for the military and intelligence communities.The tutorial described herein is intended to provide an introduction to the physical concepts, processing, performance, features, and exploitation modes that make SAR work, and make it useful. Although mathematics will be shown in some parts of the presentation, more than enough to keep and attendee happy, the lecture will focus on the qualitative significance of the mathematics rather than dry derivations. Liberal use of example SAR images and other data products will be used to illustrate the concepts discussed.

Intended Audience:
This is an introductory course, with the intended audience being scientists, engineers, technicians, or managers who wish to learn more about radar based imaging of land and sea surfaces.

Suggested Prerequisites:
An undergraduate training in engineering or science is assumed. Some familiarity with signals and systems, modulation, Fourier Transforms, and Digital Signal Processing will be very helpful.

Dr. Armin Doerry is a Distinguished Member of Technical Staff in the ISR Mission Engineering Department of Sandia National Laboratories, and a Research Professor at the University of New Mexico (UNM) Center for High-Technology Materials (CHTM). He holds a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of New Mexico. He has worked in numerous aspects of Synthetic Aperture Radar and other radar systems’ analysis, design, and fabrication since 1987, and continues to do so today. He has taught Radar Signal Processing classes (and related topics) as an adjunct professor at the University of New Mexico, and has taught numerous seminars on SAR and other radar topics to government, military, industry, and academic groups.
