A modified SPECtral ANalysis (SPECAN) algorithm based on Doppler resampling is proposed to deal with the azimuth Space-Variant (SV) phase coefficients of the High Squint (HS) SAR data acquired from maneuvering platform. Firstly, for HS SAR with constant acceleration, an orthogonal coordinate slant range model is presented, which can handle the coordinate rotation caused by the traditional method of Range Walk Correction (RWC), and solve the mismatch between the range model and the signal after RWC. Then azimuth Doppler resampling is used to correct the SV phase coefficients. The focused image is achieved by SPECAN technique. Finally, the proposed algorithm is validated by processing of simulated SAR data, and has significant improvement on focusing quality over the reference one.
