This paper derives an optimum processing method for ground moving-target indication (GMTI) with a multichannel synthetic aperture radar (SAR) system. This method enables efficient detection of moving objects and accurate estimation of their parameters and does not require any knowledge of the street network. The processing is applied to data acquired with the Canadian RADARSAT-2 satellite. Results of the performed trial are compared with the expected GMTI performance of the radar in order to validate the theory.
