Along-Track Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (ATISAR) has the potential of measuring the radial velocity of the slowly moving target. The accuracy of the radial velocity is mainly determined by the accuracy of the interferometric parameters. Sensitivity equations are good ways of analysing the impacts of system parameters for interferometric SAR. Former sensitivity analysis for ATI-SAR has been mainly focused on the case of no squint angle. In this paper, we explain the necessity of analysing the sensitivity equations in the presence of squint angle. Then the expression of the radial velocity in the presence of squint is derived and the sensitivity equations are obtained. Finally, the sensitivity of some interferometric parameters and the impact of squint angles are analysed and simulated for a particular accuracy requirement.
