Application for displaying synthetic aperture radar imagery in real-time Implementation and results

Krzysztof Ireneusz Borowiec


The paper presents implementation and results of the application for displaying SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) imagery operating in real-time. The application performs SAR imagery formation and displays results in real-time after receiving of preprocessed data via an SAR processing application. The application was used in SARape (Synthetic Aperture Radar for all weather penetrating UAV application) project founded by the European Defence Agency. The real-time operation is achieved thanks to implementation based on multithreading.
