Description

Step-frequency radar (SFR) is an attractive alternative to impulse radar for obtaining broadband time-domain scattering data [1]. Through the use of an inverse Fourier transform, the SFR frequency-domain (magnitude and phase) data may be converted into a synthetic time-domain pulse. Time-domain inverse scattering imaging techniques [1–7], , used in conjunction with SFR data collection, may be used to generate images of the permittivity and conductivity profiles of scattering objects, and can provide a useful diagnostic and investigative tool.
