19 May 2005 Extended adaptive filtering for wide-angle SAR image formation
Author Affiliations +
For two-dimensional (2-D) spectral analysis, the adaptive filtering based technologies, such as CAPON and APES (Amplitude and Phase EStimation), are developed under the implicit assumption that the data sets are rectangular. However, in real SAR applications, especially for the wide-angle cases, the collected data sets are always non-rectangular. This raises the problem of how to extend the original adaptive filtering based algorithms for such kind of scenarios. In this paper, we propose an extended adaptive filtering (EAF) approach, which includes Extended APES (E-APES) and Extended CAPON (E-CAPON), for arbitrarily shaped 2-D data. The EAF algorithms adopt a missing-data approach where the unavailable data samples close to the collected data set are assumed missing. Using a group of filter-banks with varying sizes, these algorithms are non-iterative and do not require the estimation of the unavailable samples. The improved imaging results of the proposed algorithms are demonstrated by applying them to two different SAR data sets.
