Abstract. In this work, according to objective criteria, the quality of images recovered from radio holograms measured by different methods is compared. On the basis of comparative analysis, the effectiveness of the method of measuring radio holograms based on the use of a fixed line of receivers and a line of transmitters is checked, compared with the classical method of solid matrices consisting of receivers and transmitters. In addition, the effectiveness of new methods for assessing image quality in relation to subsurface radar tasks is being tested. The conducted research allows us to conclude that it is possible in principle to use both the 2 line hologram measurement technique and the proposed criteria for assessing the quality of images obtained by remote sensing.

Key words: radio hologram, measurement method, fixed receiver lines and transmitter lines, image processing, objective assessment of the effectiveness of recovery methods.

Financing: The work was carried out within the framework of the state task of the Kotelnikov Institute of Radioengineering and Electronics (IRE) of Russian Academy of Sciences 075-01110-23-01.
