Challenges in Synthetic Aperture Radar

February 6 - 10, 2012


This interdisciplinary workshop will address challenging problems in radar imaging. The focus will be on the following issues:   sar2012

1. Exploiting data from multiple viewpoints to obtain three-dimensional information;
2. Forming images of challenging targets, such as moving targets, non-rigid targets, or targets that scatter weakly;
3. Exploiting prior information and properties such as sparsity to improve image formation;
4. Forming images through complex media, and;
5. Including more sophisticated target modeling, such as multiple scattering, polarimetric scattering, and stochastic target models, in the image formation process.
