Based on the experiences of the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Pisa and the Radar and Surveillance System (RaSS) national laboratory of the National Interuniversity Consortium of Telecommunication (CNIT), Radar Imaging for Maritime Observation presents the most recent results in radar imaging for maritime observation. The book explores both the areas of sea surface remote sensing and maritime surveillance providing key theoretical concepts of SAR and ISAR imaging and more advanced and ad-hoc techniques for applications in maritime scenarios. The book is organized in two sections. The first section discusses the fundamentals of standard SAR/ISAR processing and novel imaging techniques, such as Bistatic, Passive, and, 3D Interferometric ISAR. The second section focuses on the applications and results obtained by processing real data from maritime observations like SAR image processing for oil spill, detection in SAR images and fractal analysis. Useful to both beginners and experts in maritime observation, this book provides several examples of (mainly space-borne) radar imaging of maritime targets. Nevertheless, the same principles and techniques apply to the case of manned or unmanned carriers and to ground and air moving targets.

The cutting-edge research results on maritime radar imaging, many of them found by the authors themselves, are summarized in this book...including the only recently developed concepts of bistatic and passive ISAR.... The well-structured texts, supported by the comprehensible application of the underlying mathematics and explanatory illustrations make this book a valuable tool for both, radar engineers and university students.

This book addresses, with a very comprehensive and clear approach, one of the most important and promising application fields for radar imaging: the maritime domain. The reader finds here everything needed, from technological and application stand point, for dealing with these complex RADAR systems, the data they produce and the services derived.
