A multistatic synthetic aperture radar (SAR) system offers the potential of exceeding the capabilities of conventional SARs in various ways, one of which is to realize high-resolution imaging over wide swaths when operated under the Nyquist frequency. Due to the decrease of the operational pulse repetition frequency, the Doppler spectrum of the received data of the single channels appears strongly aliased and needs to be resolved via azimuth reconstruction. Our aim in this article is to suggest an accurate reconstruction strategy that is applicable to multistatic SAR systems also with large along-track baselines and very high resolution on curved orbits. The algorithm, which can be regarded as a generalized reconstruction in the range-Doppler domain, operates in two steps and is capable of correcting most of the polychromatic deviations over large areas, achieving accurate reconstruction in constellations with kilometric baselines, resolutions of about 15λ over swaths of hundreds of kilometers. The validity of our approach has been tested using point targets in two- and six-receiver multistatic configurations.
