Left/right ambiguity and low angular (azimuth) resolution are severe problems for monostatic forward-looking SAR imaging. It is strongly believed that these technical issues can definitely be solved with bistatic forward-looking SAR. The analysis presented in this paper points out that the left/right ambiguity problem still exits. However, an appropriate selection of the position of bistatic base line and antenna beamwidth allows us to conceal it. The paper also gives some recommendations which can be considred for the forward-looking SAR imaging.
