Abstract

The paper examines how radar imagery of the sea surface observed by a satellite-mounted lateral-view radar is generated. The lateral-view radar on the SICH-1 satellite, in comparison with that of the KOSMOS-1500 satellite, is shown to provide better linearity of radar imagery, with identical information capabilities; the RMS strobe deviation within the survey band has been dimiished from about 30–35 to 17–20 m.
