Paper Abstract

Passive millimeter wave (PMMW) imaging sensor technology has made significant advances in recent years to permit the development of manufacturable cameras which can be economically produced. In addition to its operation in adverse weather, the PMMW camera is non-emitting which makes it suitable for both military and civilian applications. For example, aircraft executing autonomous landing using GPS, need an all weather, real time, true image of the forward scene during the touch-down, roll-out, turn-off and taxi maneuvers. The PMMW camera not only provides such an image, but is easily implementable as a sensor for the pilot, and as a system which operates in an airport environment. We shall address these issues and discuss other applications of this new sensor technology.
