Many synthetic aperture radar (SAR) image formation algorithms require the computation of a multidimensional Fourier transform of irregularly sampled or unequally spaced data samples. We apply a recently developed algorithm, the unequally spaced FFT (USFFT), to SAR image formation and compare its accuracy and complexity to a conventional algorithm. We find that the USFFT algorithm allows comparable accuracy to traditional approaches at a slightly reduced computational cost. We briefly discuss extensions of the USFFT algorithm to multiresolution SAR imaging.
