Abstract : A miniature unfocussed synthetic aperture radar has been designed at RSRE. The radar parameters required a video integrator with a high data rate capability. Plessey Research (Caswell) Ltd were engaged to design and develop a 100 MHz shift register based video integrator module. At RSRE a real time test and evaluation system has been developed in conjunction with a minicomputer. A special purpose high speed computer compatible buffer store was developed by Cambridge Consultants Ltd. At RSRE a design incorporating two integrators to provide phase and quadrature processing has been developed. Details of the systems operational concepts, performance and test results are discussed.
