Title: Multi-channel techniques for 3D ISAR

Abstract: This thesis deals with the challenge of forming 3D target reconstruction by using spatial multi-channel ISAR configurations. The standard output of an ISAR imaging system is a 2D projection of the true three-dimensional target reflectivity onto an image plane. The orientation of the image plane cannot be predicted a priori as it strongly depends on the radar-target geometry and on the target motion, which is typically unknown. This leads to a difficult interpretation of the ISAR images. In this scenario, this thesis aim to give possible solutions to such problems by proposing three 3D processing based on interferometry, beamforming techniques and MIMO InISAR systems. The CLEAN method for scattering centres extraction is extended to multichannel ISAR systems and a multistatic 3D target reconstruction that is based on a incoherent technique is suggested.
