In this letter, a simulation procedure for airborne stripmap synthetic aperture radar with zero squint angle is proposed. The procedure is based on the idea of inverse processing and 1-D summation. It utilizes narrow bandwidth approximation and is more efficient compared to a time-domain simulator. Moreover, it allows for the simulation of raw data for higher aperture angle configurations compared to existing approaches. The effectiveness of the approach is demonstrated by means of examples for point scatterers.
