Burst-mode data is obtained when a SAR system is operated in ScanSAR mode. Missing data in the burst gaps makes it difficult to use traditional phase-preserving algorithms to produce single look complex (SLC) data. In this paper, three phase-preserving algorithms for burst-mode data compression are examined and compared to find the best algorithm for precision processing applications such as interferometry
