In this study, the performances of the matched filter, back-projection and w-k algorithms used in the reconstruction of the synthetic aperture radar images are compared. In the comparison, the parameters such as resolution, processing time, signal-to-noise ratio, signal-to-clutter ratio and integrated side lobe ratio are considered. The reconstruction algorithms are applied to both simulation data and real ground-based synthetic aperture radar data measured in 14-18 GHz band. The obtained results provide comparative data on which technique is more useful for the desired purpose.
