Nine different strategies are proposed to compensate the cross-track motion errors in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imaging, based on estimating the phase coefficients of the phase history. A spline interpolation method and a subaperture reconstuction method are used to derive the phase history over the whole aperture, based on the phase coefficients previously estimated. Four different scenarios are designed to compare the performance of these nine strategies.
