The past forty years have seen a number of imaging modalities developed for radar, sonar, diagnostic medicine, geophysical and celestial exploration, and non-destructive testing. Now, for those involved in designing and developing information processing tools for these imaging systems, author Mehrdad Soumekh offers in-depth coverage of diverse issues such as physical and mathematical modeling of the problem, signal processing, reconstruction, analysis of resolution and system parameter constraints, hardware structure used for data acquisition, and the overall imaging system block diagram (signal flow-chart) indicating how the acquired data are processed to yield the final reconstructed image. Fourier Array Imaging introduces the spatial Doppler phenomenon in conjunction with the most primitive signal processing tools and systems used in array imaging; presents terminologies and tools for two-dimensional signal processing; treats specific array imaging systems via the unifying framework of spatial Doppler processing, including phased-array imaging, synthetic aperture array (SAR and ISAR) imaging, passive array imaging, and bistatic array imaging with emphasis on transmission imaging problems of diagnostic medicine and geophysical exploration; devotes coverage to the analysis of resolution anticipated in an imaging system and to the constraints that are instrumental for selecting parameters of an imaging system; describes some of the classical methods used for image formation in array imaging systems and relates them to the spatial Doppler-based imaging via certain approximations.
