Abstract : This report (1) explores reformulations of the theory of SAR imaging so as to understand how to improve SAR images, structure parallel algorithms and machine architectures and to see what new SAR applications may be possible, (2) examines the issue of formulating parallel algorithms, (3) examines massive parallel computer architectures to determine the possibilities and limits provided by today's and the future massively parallel processors, (4) explores novel methods enabled by massive computing in SAR computation, (5) considers the role of countermeasures, (6) looks forward to how new SAR systems can be designed to exploit massive computing capabilities, and (7) identifies a number of research issues for future study. Lastly, the report draws conclusions as to the role of massive computing in SAR technology.
