Paper Abstract

Passive millimeter-wave detection is advantageous for detection of objects obscured by rain, steam or other aerosols. This coupled together with collision avoidance techniques, based on biologically inspired insect vision models, promises compact low-cost solutions that do not require hardware-intensive image processing. This paper examines a number of possible future directions by identifying trade-offs between different integrated antenna strategies. Signal processing issues are also briefly discussed.
