The goals of this project are the generation and compression of high resolution Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images under real time conditions. Compared to camera based electro-optical sensors, a SAR system operates almost independent from daylight and weather conditions. State-of-the-art SAR sensor systems achieve spatial resolutions up to 10 cm at 10 km altitude. By using FPGAs for high performance digital signal processing tasks, aerial images can be generated in real time even in case of very large image dimensions.
