An active system for stand-off imaging operating in a frequency range from 234 GHz to 306 GHz is presented. Imaging is achieved by combining a line array consisting of 8 emitters and 16 detectors with a scanning cylindrical mirror system. A stand-off distance of 7-8 m is achieved using a system of mirrors with effective aperture of 0.5 x 0.5 meter. Information about range and reflectivity of the object are obtained using an active FMCW (frequency modulated continuous wave) radar operation principle. Data acquisition time for one line is as short as 1 ms. Synthetic image reconstruction is achieved in real-time by an embedded GPU (Graphical Processing Unit).© (2011) COPYRIGHT Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE).
