STEREOID data processor: Design and Performance analysis

Prithvi Laguduvan Thyagarajan

Abstract: Stereo Thermo-Optically Enhanced Radar for Earth, Ocean, Ice, and land Dynamics (STEREOID) is one candidate of the ESA , Earth Explorer 10 missions. The novel constellation system will consist of the active Sentinel-1 satellites and two passive spacecrafts , which can provide flexible baseline configurations. A huge added value is foreseen in monitoring the variation of ice sheets, the eruptions of earthquakes, the volcano activities, and the landslides, playing therefore an extremely important role in understanding the global climate dynamics and the geophysical processes involved. In order to evaluate the performance of STEREOID in providing estimates of the Level-2 geophysical observables (ocean currents, digital elevation models, surface displacement, etc) an end-to-end simulator is necessary for the different system configurations (i.e., the monostatic/multi-static SAR mode). A key component of the simulator is the SAR processing kernel, that entails the image formation/focusing functionalities in the different bistatic geometries. The design of a robust focusing strategy for the STEREOID squinted illumination is the main focus of the thesis. A prototype processing kernel is implemented which can handle atleast bistatic TOPS acquisition mode and also azimuth beamforming for dual antenna configuration as proposed for STEREOID. The evaluation and performance analysis of the focuser is assesed for different scenarios.
