Paper Abstract

See Through The Wall (STTW) radar applications have become of high importance to Homeland Security and Defense needs. In this work surface penetrating radar is simulated using basic physical principles of radar propagation and polarimetric scattering. Wavenumber migration imaging is applied to simulated radar data to produce polarimetric imagery. A detection algorithm is used to identify dihedral scattering signatures for mapping inner building walls. The detector utilizes two polarimetric channels: HH and VV to classify objects as outer wall, inner wall, or object within room. The final product is a data generated building model that maps the interior walls of the building.
