The principal objective in this chapter is to develop the primary concepts that affect the design of the ultra wideband (UWB) SAR RADAR image formation processing. UWB waveforms required for operation at very high frequency (VHF) and ultra high frequency (UHF) remain a major challenge for FOPEN SAR. All subsystems that contribute to the transmit, receive, and image formation chain must consider their UWB characteristics for the images to be useful in detection, characterization, and geolocation of the objects under the foliage. This chapter will discuss the algorithms for image formation.
