Abstract : This report summarizes the outcome of research conducted over a three-year period. Part of the research involved optimizing tap weights for sparse FIR filter design, where some tap weights are zeroed either due to failure or by design. Other research dealt with applying polar-format SAR algorithms to radar astronomy, based on a tomographic viewpoint. The main focus of these studies was to extend 2-D SAR techniques to be useful in more general 3-D scenarios.
