Abstract

Bistatic and multistatic antenna systems have become increasingly popular for through-wall radar imaging because of their ability to collect more target scattering information. This increased information allows for better identification of human targets in complex clutter environments. To directly compare the abilities of bistatic and multistatic systems over monostatic radar alone, both human and clutter target data were measured and used to create receiver operating characteristic curves. In addition, the use of cross-polarization radar to reduce clutter and multipath returns was investigated by taking human target data both through a wall and in an open environment. Comparisons of this data to co-polarization returns were used to determine its practicality.
