Sensors, Vol. 20, Pages 2037: A Hybrid SAR/ISAR Approach for Refocusing Maritime Moving Targets with the GF-3 SAR Satellite (Sensors)
 


Due to self-motion and sea waves, moving ships are typically defocused in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images. To focus non-cooperative targets, the inverse SAR (ISAR) technique is commonly used with motion compensation. The hybrid SAR/ISAR approach allows a long coherent processing interval (CPI), in which SAR targets are processed with ISAR processing, and exploits the advantages of both SAR and ISAR to generate well-focused images of moving targets. In this paper, based on hybrid SAR/ISAR processing, we propose an improved rank-one phase estimation method (IROPE). By using an iterative two-step convergence approach in the IROPE, the proposed method achieves accurate phase error, maintains robustness to noise and performs well in estimating various phase errors. The performance of the proposed method is analyzed by comparing it with other focusing algorithms in terms of processing simulated data and real complex image data acquired by Gaofen-3 (GF-3) in spotlight mode. The results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
