Abstract

We present a novel active millimeter wave imaging technique that can be used to estimate target surface and reflectivity. This technique requires no mechanical scanning but requires only a sparse array of detectors. The illumination beam requires no focusing or collimation. The reconstruction is based on the time of flight information from the reflected signal.
