Title

Correcting Mutual Coupling and Poor Isolation a 1-D Microwave Imaging Array

Abstract

Data measured using an electronically-switched array is usually corrupted by mutual coupling between antenna elements and poor isolation within the array. After synthetic aperture radar (SAR) processing, images created from such data tend to be corrupted with artifacts. This paper presents a method to pre-process the data by using the well-known correlation canceling technique uniquely applied to microwave imaging.
