Radar Imaging, Bistatic Scattering, Bistatic SAR


Polarimetric measurements of the bistatic scattered fields from a rough, dry, soil surface, were performed recently at 35 GHz over the entire upper hemisphere, at both low and high incidence and scattering angles, and at near forward and backward directions. These measurements are discussed in this paper and the angular dependence of the bistatic scattering coefficients, σo , and the correlation between various polarization combinations are presented as well. In addition, a new bistatic SAR imaging technique is proposed and experimentally validated both indoors and outdoors.
