This article presents signal processing algorithms used as a new remote sensing tool, that is passive bistatic SAR with navigation satellites (e.g. GPS, GLONASS or Galileo) as transmitters of opportunity. Signal synchronisation and image formation algorithms are described for two system variants: one where the receiver is moving and one where it is fixed on the ground. The applicability and functionality of the algorithms described is demonstrated through experimental imagery that ultimately confirms the feasibility of the overall technology.
