Paper Abstract

Experimental validation of a tomographic technique for radar imaging of 3-D scenes behind walls is presented. The imaging technique is based on a linear inverse scattering algorithm combined with a 2-D sliced approach, which ensures fast data processing and quick investigation of very large spatial regions. Further, we investigate the possibility of achieving 3-D reconstructions using a limited set of data with the objective of reduction in data acquisition time, while maintaining a reasonable image quality. Performance of the limited data schemes is evaluated using experimental data collected in a semi-controlled environment.
