High-resolution imaging using capon beamformers for urban sensing applications.

A wideband synthetic aperture radar system based on beamspace Capon beamforming is presented for urban sensing applications. Various effects of signal propagation through building materials are incorporated into the beamformer design. Proof of concept is provided using real data collected in a laboratory environment. Comparison between data-independent and scene-dependent beamformers is provided. The results show that the beamspace Capon beamformer outperforms the nonadaptive delay-and-sum beamformer.
