The main operational mode of the European Space Agency's upcoming Sentinel-1 operational satellite will be the Terrain Observation by Progressive Scans (TOPS) imaging mode. This paper presents a very efficient wavenumber domain processor for the processing of TOPS mode data. In particular, a novel signal transform, called a moving band chirp Z-transform, is introduced in order to allow the entire azimuth aperture to be focused simultaneously without any need for temporary unaliasing, which requires upsampling, or subaperture processing.
