This chapter aims at providing an overview of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) principles and algorithms. The reader who is interested in having further details on SAR is invited to consult [18], [10], [11], [4], [5], [8], [6]. SAR is a signal processing technique applied to coherent radars for remote sensing applications with the capability of effectively imaging areas in all-weather/all-day conditions. In the last few decades, SAR systems have been widely employed for different applications, such as 2D/3D mapping of the Earth's surface, climate change research, environmental monitoring and security-related applications [14, 9, 1].
