What is Synthetic Aperture Radar? -- Sandia National Laboratories (798 words)
SAR systems take advantage of the long-range propagation characteristics of radar signals and the complex information processing capability of modern digital electronics to provide high resolution imagery.
A detailed description of the theory of operation of SAR is complex and beyond the scope of this document.
Since SARs are much lower in frequency than optical systems, even moderate SAR resolutions require an antenna physically larger than can be practically carried by an airborne platform: antenna lengths several hundred meters long are often required.
