Abstract:

A switched array tile which is part of a large aperture for near-field microwave imaging is presented. The tile is based on the Boundary Array BA, a sparse array topology for hardware efficient realization of imaging apertures. The larger array formed with the tile samples a scene with no redundancy, and is compatible with fast imaging techniques. Details on the design and realization of the tile are presented, as well as experimental images formed with a tile prototype.
