For flexibility and cost reduction, the forward-looking bistatic spotlight synthetic aperture radar (FL-BSSAR) which uses the side-looking transmitter and the forward-looking receiver has been studied recently. For the FL-BSSAR imaging, we introduce a modified omega-k algorithm. Specifically, using rotation and shifting of the receiver path and resampling of the transmitter path, we convert the FL-BSSAR into the side-looking BSSAR. Then, we modify the matched filter and Stolt interpolation using the principle of the stationary phase to obtain the SAR image. Simulation results show that the modified omega-k algorithm enhances the image quality.
