Microwave Imaging and Remote Sensing of Concealed Objects

PI: Prof. M Jaleel Akhtar

This project mainly focuses on the development of a viable prototype system for the imaging of concealed objects using microwaves. The basic aim of the project is to explore the use of an alternative technique based on the microwave technology for the imaging of concealed objects at airport and other important public locations. The conventional X-ray systems presently being used at such places are usually not considered to be much safer because of their ionizing nature, and they are not able to fully detect plastic explosives. This project would also concentrate on detection of anti-personal plastic mines in case of remote sensing, which can otherwise not be detected using the conventional metal detectors.
