First Half 2006
Progress is not reported online because the password to enter the Online Progress Monitoring is obtained only at the deadline.
Second Half 2006
Literature survey on SAR image processing algorithms including Range Doppler algorithm, Chirp Scaling algorithm and Omega-K algorithm, to determine which stage the motion compensation should be applied, the difficulties of motion compensation for each algorithm.
Papers on available motion compensation system for airborne SAR have been reviewed.
First Half 2007
Study the reasons of motion errors, the relations between motion errors and phase errors, the effects of various type of phase errors on the quality of SAR images.
The effects of phase errors on SAR images are studied in Matlab.
