This paper introduces a method to process bistatic data collected in a configuration where the receiver is stationary and the transmitter has a constant velocity and constant altitude. The signal processing uses a standard Fourier-based convolution to achieve the bulk of the SAR processing followed by fast, timevarying filtering to correct residual e A simulation is used to compare the proposed method with the method of non-linear chirp scaling.rrors. Theoretical analysis and simulated data are used to demonstrate the approach.
