High-Resolution Bistatic ISAR Imaging of a Space Target with Sparse Aperture
AbstractDue to the large size of space targets, migration through resolution cells (MTRC) are induced by a rotational motion in high-resolution bistatic inverse synthetic aperture radar (Bi-ISAR) systems. The inaccurate correction of MTRC degrades the quality of Bi-ISAR images. However, it is challenging to correct the MTRC where sparse aperture data exists for Bi-ISAR systems. A joint approach of MTRC correction and sparse high-resolution imaging for Bi-ISAR systems is presented in this paper. First, a Bi-ISAR imaging sparse model-related to MTRC is established based on compress sensing (CS). Second, the target image elements and noise are modeled as the complex Laplace prior, and the Gaussian prior, respectively. Finally, the high-resolution, well-focused image is obtained by the full Bayesian inference method, without manual adjustments of unknown parameters. Simulated results verify the effectiveness and robustness of the proposed algorithm. View Full-Text
