Using Cramér-Rao theory for SAR waveform design


Conference Paper

© 2005 IEEE. This paper applies Cramér-Rao theory to synthetic aperture radar (SAR) in order to establish optimal performance bounds on target parameter estimation. The Cramér-Rao bound (CRB) establishes a lower bound on the error variance of unbiased or asymptotically efficient parameter estimates (L.L. Scharf, 1991). Bounds on the estimation of various target parameters are developed, and the extension to multistatic SAR (MSAR) is considered.
