This paper presents an algorithm for the detection of moving targets within single channel SAR data. It involves the linear keystone transform and an iterative quadratic phase correction to reduce the effect of range cell migration in high resolution radar systems. The effectiveness of the algorithm is demonstrated using a simulated dataset.
