Paper Abstract

We describe the architecture and design of a through-the-wall radar. The radar is applied for the detection and localization of people hidden behind obstacles. It implements a new adaptive processing technique for people detection, which is introduced in this article. This processing technique is based on exponential averaging with adopted weighting coefficients. Through-the-wall detection and localization of a moving person is demonstrated by a measurement example. The localization relies on the time-of-flight approach.
