Due to the constraint of minimum antenna area, azimuth ambiguity resolving is a challenging task in the ship focusing for single-channel synthetic aperture radar (SAR) mounted on high-speed maneuvering platforms. In order to accommodate the issues, a ship focusing algorithm based on azimuth ambiguity resolving is proposed in this paper. For ship SAR imaging with small-aperture data, the energies of different targets are separated in Doppler domain with different Doppler ambiguity numbers. Thus, the Doppler ambiguity number of a single target can be estimated by residual envelope inclination. Then, the target can be accurately focused and located at the correct position by the known Doppler ambiguity number. After the operation of each target is completed, the focusing SAR image of the whole scene can be obtained. Finally, simulation results are presented to validate the proposed algorithm.
