Abstract

While imaging geosynchronously orbiting objects with ground-based inverse synthetic aperture LADAR (ISAL), target rotation and vibration will introduce phase errors into the echo and cause the two-dimensional imaging result to be defocused. To solve this problem, one layout of the ISAL receiving channels is designed, combining the orthogonal short baselines in the inner field with the orthogonal long baselines in the external field. On this basis, an imaging method based on orthogonal interferometry processing is proposed. The proposed method estimates and compensates for the phase errors introduced by the rotation and vibration of the target such that the focus of the two-dimensional image is improved, and three-dimensional imaging results with high accuracy are obtained. The effectiveness of the proposed method is verified by simulation data.
