SAR raw data simulation for Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) is an important step for the study and testing of different SAR image formation algorithms. This paper presents a new approach of SAR raw data simulation, based on the inversion of SAR image formation algorithms such as ω-k and chirp scaling algorithms. We describe these algorithms along with the issues involved and some results.
