A SIMPLE STRATEGY TO DETECT CHANGES IN THROUGH THE WALL IMAGING

By F. Soldovieri, R. Solimene, and R. Pierri

Full Article PDF (232 KB)

Abstract:
In this paper a simple strategy to detect changes in through-the-wall imaging scenarios is presented. In particular, tomographic reconstructions taken at different instants of time are exploited. This allows to increase the detectability of scatterers whose positions are varied in two different data collections. The feasibility of the technique is demonstrated with both synthetic and experimental data.
