High-resolution wide-swath (HRWS) multichannel synthetic aperture radar (SAR) system possesses a number of receiving channels along the azimuth direction, so it has the capacity of moving target indication and imaging. However, due to the radial velocity of the moving target, false targets occur in the focused image. By estimating the radial velocity and combining it with moving target imaging, false targets can be effectively suppressed. In this letter, a method of radial velocity estimation of a moving target is proposed based on the theory of subspace projection. This method does not need to estimate the real azimuth position of the moving target and can predict the processing time. Simulation and airborne measured data show the effectiveness of the proposed method.
