Scattering Centers Monitoring in Refocused SAR Images on a High Resolution DEM

Abstract

Infrastructure monitoring applications can require the tracking of slowly moving points of a certain structure. Given a certain point from a structure to be monitored, in the context of available SAR products where the image is already focused in a slant range - azimuth grid, it is not obvious if this point is the scattering center, if it is in layover or if it is visible from the respective orbit. This paper proposes a scattering center monitoring procedure based on refocusing a set of SAR images on a provided high-resolution DEM of the structure. The scattering centers of the refocused image are detected in the 4-D tomography framework by testing if the main response is at zero elevation in the local elevation-velocity spectral distribution obtained using the Capon estimator. The algorithm is validated on real data acquired with the TerraSAR-X satellite over the Puylaurent water dam in France during March-June 2012. The relative displacements between scattering regions show very good agreement with the in situ measurements.
