Microwave Synthetic Aperture Radar Imaging using Sparse Measurement
This paper evaluates Compressed Sensing (CS) techniques for image recovery from sparse measurement of wideband microwave synthetic aperture radar. A specimen under test (SUT) consists of a tray of small rocks of different densities and with/without one piece that is wrapped in aluminum foil. The fully-sampled measurements of the SUT are randomly under-sampled in the space domain and the images are reconstructed from measurements of 10%-50% sparse-sampling rates using conventional zero-filling (ZF) and NUFFT methods in comparison to the advanced CS method. The results show that the CS method achieves good image quality with as low as 30% sparse-sampling rate, while ZF and NUFFT require 50% to obtain acceptable quality. The reduction of spatial measurement leads to reduced cost or reduced measurement time.
