In ultra-wideband synthetic aperture radar (UWB SAR) imaging, scatterers often perform the frequency- and aspect angle-dependent reflectivity characteristic, which is usually neglected in traditional imaging processing. A novel UWB SAR time-frequency representation image formation (TFRIF) is proposed to retrieve the frequency- and aspect angle-dependent information, which is valuable in target detection. Based on the TFRIF, two fusion schemes are studied: pixel level fusion (PLF) and decision level fusion (DLF). Based on the analytical expressions, it is concluded that TFRIF can extract the reflectivity pattern information with high precision and little sacrifice of the spatial resolutions. Quantitative analyses of spatial resolutions and detectability improvement of the proposed fusion schemes are tested on airborne UWB SAR data. The real data results validate the proposed TFRIF and its associated PLF and DLF schemes
