For high-quality synthetic aperture radar (SAR) processing, Doppler centroid estimation is an essential procedure. An incorrect Doppler centroid would cause a loss of SNR, an increase in the azimuth ambiguity level, a shift in the location of the target, etc. An improved Radon-transform-based Doppler centroid estimation scheme of bistatic forward-looking SAR is proposed in this letter. First, this scheme performs edge detection on the range-compressed data and then does the coarse and fine Radon transforms to estimate the Doppler centroid. Simulations and real-data experiments validate the effectiveness of this method.
