Abstract:
This paper presents an innovative inverse scattering approach based on a fuzzy-logic strategy aimed at fully exploiting the information content of the scattered data in a microwave imaging system. The effectiveness of the proposed method is assessed through the results of a numerical analysis concerned with the reconstruction of single as well as multiple dielectric targets in various noisy environments. For comparison purposes, the obtained performance are compared with those of a standard method in terms of reconstruction accuracy and computational load to point out the improvement induced by the proposed approach.
