Abstract

Multistatic synthetic aperture radar (SAR) is a SAR system consisted of multiple transmitters and receivers. A multistatic SAR system is highly flexible in the selection of radar parameters compared to a monostatic SAR system. The image quality can be adjusted by controlling the parameters of a multistatic SAR system. In this paper, a multistatic SAR system is simulated where the distance between the satellites is varied. The numerical simulation assumed three satellites traveling in the along track configuration. One of the satellites was used as transmitter and receiver, and the others were used as receivers. The back-projection algorithm was modified to synthesize a radar image using multistatic SAR data. Multiple multistatic SAR with different distance between the satellites were simulated. The resolution and peak sidelobe ratio (PSLR) of multistatic SAR image were analyzed.
