This paper presents an evaluation of the state-of-the-art Ground Moving Target Indication (GMTI) techniques in the frame of space-borne Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) for vessel detection by means of a flexible SAR-GMTI simulator tool. Among the different GMTI techniques, Displaced Phase Center Antenna (DPCA), Along-Track Interferometry (ATI) and Imaging Space-Time Adaptive Processing (ISTAP) have been evaluated.
