In this letter, a new 3-D imaging algorithm is proposed for forward-looking synthetic aperture radar based on the imaging geometry and the characteristic of the echo signal. The key point of the proposed algorithm is the introduction of the nonlinear frequency modulation scaling in along-track processing to obtain accurate focusing. As the method needs only Fourier transform and multiplication operations, it is computationally efficient. Simulations with point scatterers are used to validate the method.
