Electromagnetic Imaging Method Based on Time Reversal Processing Applied to through -the-Wall Target Localization
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 1, 59-67, 2008
Abstract
A time reversal method is studied and adapted to through-the-wall detection and localization of moving targets. Tests are realised on experimental data in a synthetic aperture radar configuration. The efficiency of the method to extract a moving target from a cluttered environment is proved on experimental data.
