Abstract

The effect of look angle on the accuracy performance of fixed-baseline interferometric synthetic aperture radar is studied. It is shown that there exists an optimal look angle that minimizes the variance of the surface height estimate for a resolution cell, and it depends upon the system as well as surface parameters. Numerical analysis confirming the existence of the optimal look angle is presented.
