  • A Ku-band geosynchronous synthetic aperture radar mission analysis with medium transmitted power and medium-sized antenna 

    Ruiz, Josep; Broquetas Ibars, Antoni; Monti Guarnieri, Andrea; Rocca, Fabio (IEEE, 2011)
    Conference report

    In this paper, the feasibility of a geosynchronous satellite for Synthetic Aperture Radar applications is assessed. The nearly fixed position of geosynchronous satellites offers new features to SAR acquisition such as ...
  • Advanced radar geosynchronous observation system: ARGOS 

    Monti Guarnieri, Andrea; Broquetas Ibars, Antoni; Recchia, Andrea; Rocca, Fabio; Ruiz Rodon, Josep (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015-07-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The Advanced Radar Geosynchronous Observation System is proposed to be a multiple-input–multiple-output synthetic aperture radar (SAR) system hosted on a swarm of minisatellites in quasi-geostationary orbits. The system ...
  • An efficient method for the azimuth compression of geosynchronous SAR data through sub-apertures processing 

    Belotti, Michele; Broquetas Ibars, Antoni; Leanza, Antonio; Monti Guarnieri, Andrea; Recchia, Andrea; Rocca, Fabio; Ruiz Rodon, Josep; Tebaldini, Stefano (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We propose an efficient method for the azimuth compression and Atmospheric Phase Screen estimation of Geosynchronous SAR data. The method is based on the iterative processing of sub-apertures of increasing size, allowing ...
  • Assesment of atmospheric phase screen impact on Geosynchronous SAR 

    Recchia, Andrea; Monti Guarnieri, Andrea; Broquetas Ibars, Antoni; Ruiz Rodon, Josep (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The paper evaluates the effects of Atmospheric Phase Screen on focused Geosynchronous SAR data. We derive theoretical models for the resolution, the interferometric de-correlation and the induced clutter in presence of an ...
  • Atmospheric phase screen retrieval from GEOSAR long term acquisition 

    Ruiz Rodon, Josep; Broquetas Ibars, Antoni; Monti Guarnieri, Andrea; Rocca, Fabio (2012)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this paper, a GEOSAR mission with typical LEOSAR parameters but longer integration time to increase the received power is presented. Such systems can provide images of large areas with continuous monitoring. The revisit ...
  • Bistatic geosynchronous SAR for land and atmosphere continuous observation 

    Ruiz Rodon, Josep; Broquetas Ibars, Antoni; Monti Guarnieri, Andrea; Recchia, Andrea (VDE Conference Publications, 2014)
    Conference lecture
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this paper the bistatic SAR observation from low-eccentric nearly zero inclined geosynchronous orbits (GEOSAR) is studied. Two operation frequencies have been analysed with different compromises between spatial resolution ...
  • Feasibility of geosynchronous satellites for synthetic aperture radar remote sensing at Ka-BAND 

    Ruiz, Josep; González, Alba; Broquetas Ibars, Antoni; Monti Guarnieri, Andrea; Carcano, Laura; Fideli, Giorgio; Rocca, Fabbio (European Space Agency (ESA), 2010)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - author's decision
    This document presents the conceptual design and analysis of a Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) system based on geosynchronous satellites (GEOSAR) working at Ka-band. These satellites, apparently orbiting in a fixed position ...
  • GEMINI: geosynchronous SAR for Earth monitoring by interferometry and imaging 

    Monti Guarnieri, Andrea; Tebaldini, Stefano; Rocca, Fabio; Broquetas Ibars, Antoni (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this paper we discuss a preliminary design for a constellation of geosynchronous (GEO) Synthetic Aperture Radars (SAR). The key design concept is to employ one or more pairs of closely-spaced twin receivers flown ...
  • Impact of clutter decorrelation on Geosynchronous SAR 

    Recchia, Andrea; Monti Guarnieri, Andrea; Broquetas Ibars, Antoni; Ruiz Rodon, Josep (VDE Conference Publications, 2014)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We discuss the effects of the clutter on a Geosynchronous SAR system exploiting long integration times (from minutes to hours) to counteract for spread losses and increase azimuth resolution. Only stable targets will be ...
  • Internal clutter motion impact on the long integration GEOSAR acquisition 

    Ruiz Rodon, Josep; Broquetas Ibars, Antoni; Makul, Eduardo; Monti Guarnieri, Andrea; Recchia, Andrea (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this paper, the impact of the internal clutter motion in GEOSAR acquisitions is analyzed. A nearly zero inclination with low eccentricity geosynchronous orbit is considered and, therefore, long integration, in order of ...
