The ultralong synthetic aperture time and a very large scene cause severe 2-D spatial variation in geosynchronous synthetic aperture radar. The range variation was corrected using the range cell migration equalization and the modified chirp scaling function. The azimuth variation correction with the singular value decomposition and the azimuth nonlinear scaling was studied. The validity of the proposed imaging algorithm has been assessed. Satisfactory results were obtained in the removal of the azimuth variation, and the focusing of point targets from a synthetic aperture up to 1000 sand a scene of 150 km (azimuth) × 130 km (range).
