AbstractThe paper describes the idea of veriﬁcation of a Linear Frequency Modulation - Continuous Waveform (LFM- CW) Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) processing system operat- ing in real-time by arbitrary generation of the beat signal. The system under the test collects the beat signal from the arbitrary waveform generator, instead from the radio frequency (RF) front- end, and produces the image. Beat waveforms are prepared previously in a SAR simulator and may correspond to a variety of mission scenarios - from single scatterers and linear platform movement to complex urban scenes and perturbed trajectories of the radar carrier. With such approach the digital and software part of the SAR processor can be examined very simply and efﬁciently at system level.
