Abstract

Passive microwave imaging allows a daytime independent observation and examination of objects and persons without artificial exposure under nearly all weather conditions. The penetration capability of microwaves allows the detection of hidden objects like weapons and explosive devices under the clothing. In August/September 2008 a comprehensive military experiment was conducted by the German armed forces at the naval base Eckernfoerde, Germany. One activity in the Eckernfoerde trial was the simulation of a military entrance portal by a tent including various imaging and a chemical sensor suite. Besides commercial optical and infrared cameras various passive millimeter-wave imagers have been used from different German research institutions. The DLR Microwaves and Radar Institute, Department for Reconnaissance and Security (HR-AS), provided an imaging radiometer scanner operating at W band. A multitude of situations have been simulated and many persons carrying hidden objects under their clothing have been scanned. Some exemplary results from the trial are shown and discussed in the paper.
