Paper Abstract

Battlefield obscurants including smoke, dust, and inclement weather limit the ability of our Armed Forces to recognize targets. Infrared imaging systems have proven extremely useful for day/night operation, but are of limited use on the "dirty battlefield". To penetrate obscurants, yet meet the spatial resolution required for target recognition, a near-millimeter wave imaging system is needed.
