Proof-Along-Track Resolution Synthetic Aperature Radar (SAR)

The PDF document highlights information with regard to the Synthetic Aperature Radar.

Of interest for the problems in the word document are the equations on page 5 (title: Along-track resolution) and 6 of the PDF document.
The equation for two-way phase shift with regard to range is shown on page 3.

Thanks in advance for any/all assistance.

On page 3:

phi = phi_o + 2pi*v^2*t^2/lembda*Ro + higher order terms

Because, in higher order terms the denominator increases much faster than numerator, therefore the higher order terms are neglected.

phi = phi_o + ...

Solution Summary

The solution provides a step-by-step proof for the resolution synthetic aperture radar.
