Noncoherent approach to through-the-wall radar localization.

A noncoherent through-the-wall radar system approach, based on stepped-frequency signal synthesis and trilateration technique, is presented. This approach involves multiple independent monostatic radar units and as such, provides flexibility in positioning the units with various standoff distances and inter-element spacing. We demonstrate the performance of the proposed noncoherent localization system using simulated and real data. The results show that the radar is able to detect and locate multiple targets behind walls.
