The performance of the high-resolution synthetic aperture radar (SAR) with moving-target indication and imaging systems can be analyzed and evaluated by modeling the whole imaging system through a simulation. The raw-data generation in the time domain achieves a realistic simulation procedure provided that computational complexity can be tolerable. In this letter, we proposed an efficient SAR raw-data generator of a scene that includes both static and moving targets. The raw data set of an extended scene and the moving target is simulated in the frequency domain separately and superposed in the time domain. The generated raw data for fixed and moving targets are also processed and analyzed.
