Abstract

The authors discuss an efficient phase preserving technique for ScanSAR focusing, used to obtain images suitable for ScanSAR interferometry. Given two complex focused ScanSAR images of the same area, an interferogram can be generated as for conventional repeat pass SAR interferometry. However, due to the nonstationary azimuth spectrum of ScanSAR images, the coherence of the interferometric pair and the interferogram resolution are affected, both by the possible scan misregistration between two passes and by the terrain slopes along the azimuth. The resulting decorrelation can be significantly reduced by means of an azimuth varying filter, provided that some conditions on the scan misregistration are met. Finally, the SAR-ScanSAR interferometry is proposed: here the decorrelation can always be removed. With no resolution loss by means of the technique presented
