An innovative scheme is presented for moving target detection and high-resolution focusing that exploits a bank of chirp scaling algorithms (CSA), each one matched to a different along track target velocity component. The new scheme is thought for multichannel (MC) synthetic aperture radar systems, to provide a high-resolution focusing of the moving targets. Adequate target detection capability is ensured by integrating the aforementioned bank of CSA with a post-Doppler space–time adaptive processing clutter cancellation step. The presented scheme is very efficient from a computational point of view and is able to achieve sub-clutter visibility for the moving targets. The effectiveness of the proposed techniques is shown with reference to an emulated MC data set.
