In this letter, we discuss the problem that linear range cell walk correction in the azimuth time domain may cause space variation along the azimuth not only to the quadratic phase but also to the quadratic range cell migration (QRCM) under the conditions of high resolution and large scene along the azimuth. Moreover, an algorithm is proposed to deal with this problem. The proposed algorithm adopts the azimuth space variation filtering in the range frequency domain. In addition, the range-dependence component of QRCM is corrected by linear chirp scaling, and the unified QRCM can be corrected in the 2-D frequency domain. The proposed algorithm, without interpolation, can be easily implemented by integrating with motion compensation for image processing. Simulation and airborne strip-map real data show the accuracy and efficiency of the proposed algorithm.
