Paper Abstract

In this work, we present the development of a multi-sensor system for the detection of objects concealed under clothes using passive and active millimeter-wave (mmW) technologies. This study concerns both the optimization of a commercial passive mmW imager at 94 GHz using a phase mask and the development of an active mmW detector at 77 GHz based on synthetic aperture radar (SAR). A first wide-field inspection is done by the passive imager while the person is walking. If a suspicious area is detected, the active imager is switched-on and focused on this area in order to obtain more accurate data (shape of the object, nature of the material ...).
