Conventional interferometric inverse synthetic aperture radar three dimensional imaging only consider broadside imaging condition. In this paper, squint model imaging configuration is discussed and the coordinate transform equation is given. The ISAR range profile envelope alignment problem among different antennas are also discussed. Simulation results show the effectiveness of our proposed method.
