Multichannel SAR Interferometry via Classical and Bayesian Estimation Techniques


Some multichannel synthetic aperture radar interferometric configurations are analyzed. Both across-track and along-track interferometric systems, allowing to recover the height profile of the ground or the moving target radial velocities, respectively, are considered. The joint use of multichannel configurations, which can be either multifrequency or multi-baseline, and of classical or Bayesian statistical estimation techniques allows to obtain very accurate solutions and to overcome the limitations due to the presence of ambiguous solutions, intrinsic in the single-channel configurations. The improved performance of the multichannel-based methods with respect to the corresponding single-channel ones has been tested with numerical experiments on simulated data.
