Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The interest in bistatic SAR continues to increase due to the key advantages introduced by the use of two different platforms to transmit and receive signals [1]. There are two main operational issues that need to be addressed in bistatic SAR systems. The first is the requirement of an accurate syncronization between the transmitter and the receiver while the second is the capability to handle the particular bistatic slant range function in the processing algorithms [2]. [3]. The Chebyshev polynomial are shown to provide a more accurate approximation of the slant range function with negligible increased processing requirements.
