In the context of spaceborne synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imaging, high resolution and wide swath are inherently conflicting requirements. These may however be simultaneously satisfied by advanced imaging modes with multichannel architectures in elevation and/or azimuth. The paper elaborates on a new mode based on multiple elevation beams and a simple PRI variation scheme which allows highresolution wide-swath imaging. It is shown to use the illumination time more efficiently than ScanSAR and yet to be simpler than staggered SAR. Good SAR imaging performance is achieved with a rather compact antenna design. The proposed imaging mode is suitable for spaceborne SAR systems with planar and reflector antennas. In order to improve the imaging performance, a reflector antenna architecture with a multichannel feed in both elevation and azimuth is considered.
