Abstract
Intelligent Automation Inc. (IAI) proposes to develop a portable high-resolution imaging system based on frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) millimeter-wave (MMW) radar. The system will be operating at a stand-off distance (5-10meter) to detect concealed objects such as bulk quantities of currencies secreted on person or in luggage which are moving at walking speed. The key advantages of this system include: 3D ultra high-resolution imaging (centimeters); capability of seeing through clothing or through leather; portable and easy to setup; advanced target recognition algorithms for bulk quantities of currencies, such as radar polarimetry, Bragg-scattering signature and MUSIC superresolution analysis; Solely based on COTS RF components and existing IAI-developed DSP system; extremely low RF-emission due to the nature of close-range sensing.
