In very high resolution spaceborne-squinted sliding spotlight synthetic aperture radar, the traditional imaging algorithms based on the equivalent squint range model (ESRM) cannot be applied, because the ESRM model is inaccurate in this case. For this problem, this paper proposes a squint equivalent acceleration range model to precisely take into account the spaceborne-squinted curved orbit. Then a full-aperture squint-imaging algorithm is proposed based on this new range model, which can handle the azimuth variation of the equivalent velocity and the range variation of the 2-D frequency spectrum. The results of the simulation validate the effectiveness of new range model and imaging algorithm.
