Abstract

Undesired wall reflections in through-the-wall imaging can mask the return from actual targets and saturate and block the receiver. We propose frequency-modulated interrupted continuous wave (FMICW) signals as a novel wall removal technique and validate its effectiveness through numerical simulations and experiments performed using a radar system built for the purpose. FMICW waveforms appear to mitigate wall reflections and benefit the through-wall detection of stationary targets and of people moving or breathing behind different kinds of wall.
