  1. Ian G. Cumming and John R. Bennett. Digital processing of SEASAT SAR data. In Proc. Rec. IEEE Int. Conf. Acoust., Speech Signal, volume 4, Washington, DC, pages 710-718, April 1979. Keyword(s): SAR Processing, Seasat, Spaceborne SAR, Range Compression, Azimuth Compression, Azimuth Focusing.
    Abstract: The Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), on board the Seasat-A satellite, provides an all-weather imaging capability which should prove useful in a number of remote sensing applications. Unlike optical (Landsat) data, the SAR data requires extensive two-dimensional, space variant signal processing before an image is formed. This paper describes the signal processing operations in a digital processor which has been built to produce images from the Seasat-A SAR data. It describes the operations of real-to-complex data conversion, range compression via fast convolution, matrix transformation of 40 MB disk arrays, range cell migration correction, look extraction via bandpass filtering, azimuth compression via fast convolution, interpolation and detection.

This collection of SAR literature is far from being complete.
It is rather a collection of papers which I store in my literature data base. Hence, the list of publications under PUBLICATIONS OF AUTHOR'S NAME should NOT be mistaken for a complete bibliography of that author.
