We present an alternating direction method of multipliers (ADMM) based autofocused Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) imaging method in the presence of unknown 1-D phase errors in the phase history domain, with undersampled measurements. We formulate the problem as one of joint image formation and phase error estimation. We assume sparsity of strong scatterers in the image domain, and as such use sparsity priors for reconstruction. The algorithm uses l(p)-norm minimization (p <= 1)  with an improvement by integrating the phase error updates within the alternating direction method of multipliers (ADMM) steps to correct the unknown 1-D phase error. We present experimental results comparing our proposed algorithm with a coordinate descent based algorithm in terms of convergence speed and reconstruction quality.
