Single Polarized Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) system was done by previous FYP student and Temasek Lab (TL) Staff. The drawback of a Single Polarized SAR is that some of the hidden path could be hidden and only be seen by the other polarized. This would be more elaborated in Chapter 1 section 1.2. Thus, there is a need to upgrade the system to a Full Polarized SAR and make the SAR image more attractive. Currently, the system designed for the Full Polarized SAR had been completed. The development of the programs for the data recording of the de-chirp signal via Single or Multi-Channel recording through the ADC card had been completed. The Matlab was used to create the required files to transmit the chirp signal through an Arbitrary Waveform Generator (AWG) had been completed. The tested result of the data recording program meets the requirement of the Single and Multi-Channel recording. The dual channel AWG generated output with the toggling effect of ON and OFF for Full Polarized SAR had been completed. Lastly, the recommendation of the future direction the project could take.
