Parallelization of Range Doppler Algorithm for Strip Map Image Formation in Air Borne Platform
RDA (Range Doppler algorithm) SAR image formation algorithm is implemented in parallel processing approach for real time implementation in airborne platform in this paper. The operation of range compression and azimuth compression is reduced by using this parallel approach. The algorithm will decrease the computation load and increase the performance. The parallelization of RDA algorithm is implemented & tested on the Intel Xeon-E5 Processor and verify that the algorithm has high real time property and parallel efficiency by using MPI dataflow.
