The paper proposes a new and straightforward derivation method for the two-dimensional attitude control in the satellite local coordinate system in geosynchronous earth orbit (GEO) SAR. The attitude control method considers the earth rotation and elliptical orbit effects, and can compensate the Doppler centroid into zero. Because the GEO SAR platform and the yaw angle are too large, the two-dimensional phase scanning method is put forward to carry out the high accurate compensation of Doppler centriod, which can avoid the difficulty of rotating and stabilizing GEO SAR platform. The simulations validate the correctness of derivation results in this paper.
