Radar astronomy
Radar images provide information about the shapes and surface properties of solid bodies, which cannot be obtained by other ground-based techniques.

Side looking airborne radar
Side-looking airborne radar (SLAR) is an aircraft- or satellite-mounted imaging radar pointing perpendicular to the direction of flight (hence side-looking). A squinted (nonperpendicular) mode is possible also.

Radar display

A-scopeB-Scopedisplay of some sort
The traditional application of radar is to display the position and motion of typically highly reflective objects (such as aircraft or ships) by sending out a radiowave signal, and then detecting the direction and delay of the reflected signal.

Scattering

Imaging radar on the other hand attempts to form an image of one object (e.g. a landscape) by furthermore registering the intensity of the reflected signal to determine the amount of scattering (cf.

Doppler effect

Dopplerdoppler shiftDoppler shifts
Generally they take advantage of the Doppler effect caused by the rotation or other motion of the object and by the changing view of the object brought about by the relative motion between the object and the back-scatter that is perceived by the radar of the object (typically, a plane) flying over the earth.
