The Signal-to-Noise ratio for a Synthetic Aperture Radar calculator compute a factor that indicates the picture quality for a Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) based on numerous antenna and target characteristics (see inputs).

The Signal-to-Noise1 equation is a measure of how fine a picture is produced by a Synthetic Aperture Radar.  A higher SNR means a finer picture (better quality).  A lower SNR means a coarser picture (worse quality).  For more information on this equation and its parameters, please see the Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Calculator.
