Recently it has been established that there is similarity in the mathematical principles for image reconstruction in computer-aided tomography (CAT) and synthetic aperture radar (SAR). Based on this similarity, it was proposed that convolution back-projection (CBP) reconstruction, an algorithm in CAT processing, could be useful for SAR processing. This paper examines the use of CBP reconstruction in SAR, describes modifications of CBP needed for the spotlight mode geometry, and presents computer simulations to illustrate its performance.
