Millimeter Wave Whole Body Scanning Radar Hardware for AIT
R3-A1

Overview and technical approach

  • Custom designed reflector-based antennas for focused wide-angle illumination to speed data acquisition and image strongly inclined body surfaces
  • Multiple transmitters enhance horizontal resolution and ensure imaging of full 360 deg. of body
  • Multistatic array sensing to avoid dihedral artifacts from body crevices and reduce false alarms

Relevance to the DHS Enterprise

  • Custom developed AIT hardware speeds scanning
  • Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) communication modules repurposed as radar saves money, allows for general security use
  • Multistatic configuration extends imaging performance by giving multiple views of every body surface pixel>/li>
