This paper presents the interferometric airborne repeat-pass mode results at X-band after applying a complete residual motion compensation (MoCo) strategy. The data were acquired, over the Perugia area, Italy, by the OrbiSAR sensor from OrbiSat, Brazil, and the first X-Band D-InSAR results were published, where a space-invariant topography-dependent MoCo was applied after focusing with smoothed elevation model. Now, in this paper, we apply to the same X-band data the precise topography- and aperture-dependent (PTA) MoCo and the weighted phase curvature autofocus (WPCA) to account for high-order residual motion errors. We compare the differential interferograms and coherence map obtained after PTA-WPCA to the formerly results. The results show improvement in the interferometric accuracy after PTA-WPCA processing.

Abstract

This paper presents the interferometric airborne repeat-pass mode results at X-band after applying a complete residual motion compensation (MoCo) strategy. The data were acquired, over the Perugia area, Italy, by the OrbiSAR sensor from OrbiSat, Brazil, and the first X-Band D-InSAR results were published, where a space-invariant topography-dependent MoCo was applied after focusing with smoothed elevation model. Now, in this paper, we apply to the same X-band data the precise topography- and aperture-dependent (PTA) MoCo and the weighted phase curvature autofocus (WPCA) to account for high-order residual motion errors. We compare the differential interferograms and coherence map obtained after PTA-WPCA to the formerly results. The results show improvement in the interferometric accuracy after PTA-WPCA processing. The need of such complete processing chain for narrowband systems is discussed. ©2009 IEEE.
