Radar imaging calls for high resolution in at least two dimensions, typically in range and azimuth. Synthetic aperture radar techniques allow high resolution in azimuth without the need of a large physical antenna. For decades, imaging radar systems have been expensive and available only for special purposes such as space applications and high-end military airborne systems. This paper discusses an inexpensive and accessible means for synthetic aperture radar imaging. We present a short-range experiment of high resolution using commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware components.
