A compact and lightweight synthetic aperture radar (SAR) that can be loaded on a miniature unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) was recently developed. The higher the frequency is, the smaller is the antenna size and the microwave characteristics are improved. Thus, a high frequency is favorable for miniaturization and weight reduction. In this chapter, a method of obtaining a radar image through a 94-GHz frequency modulation continuous wave (FMCW) radar is proposed. In addition, a method of motion compensation is described, and the W-band SAR image after motion compensation is confirmed. This kind of SAR imaging can provide geographic information and characteristics of extreme environments, disaster scenes, and information on sites where human access is difficult.
