Two characteristics of electromagnetic Radiation wavelength frequency.
Ex. Assume the speed of light to be 3x10 8 m/s. If the frequency of an electromagnetic wave is 500,000 GHz (GHz =gigahertz = 10 9 m/s), what is the wavelength of that radiation? Express your answer in micrometres (μm).
Problems Ex. A given SLAR system transmits pulses over a duration of Find the range resolution of the system at a depression angle 45 0 Ans: 21m Ex. A given SLAR system has a 1.8 mrad antenna beamwidth. Determine the azimuthal resolution of the system at ranges of 6 km and 12 km Ans: 10.8 m & 21.6 m Ex. A given SLAR system has a 2 mrad antenna beamwidth and wavelength of the transmitted pulse is 5 cm. Determine the length of the antenna Ans: 25 m
The deficiencies of brute force operation are overcome in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) systems. Having short physical antenna through modified data recording and processing techniques, but synthesize the effect of a very long antenna. The result of this mode of operation is a narrow effective antenna beamwidth, even at far ranges, without requiring physically long antenna or a short operating wavelength. At the detailed level, the operation of SAR systems is quite complex SLAR
Fig. Concept of an array of real antenna positions forming a synthetic aperture
Operate on the principle of using the sensor motion along track to transform a single physically short antenna into an array of such antennas that can be linked together mathematically as part the data recording and processing procedures The "real" antenna is shown in several successive positions along the flight line. These successive positions are treated mathematically as if they are simply successive elements of a single long synthetic antenna
