Abstract:

This paper presents the development of a millimeter wave system to conduct 3D body measurements of a person without the need for him to remove his clothes. This method uses the commercial vector network analyser to transmit and receive a wideband signal centred at 35GHz. The millimeter wave signal illuminates the target, penetrates the clothing and reflects off the surface of the body. The frequency- and time-domain information are analysed and processed to obtain the 3D image.

Keywords:

3D body scanning, millimeter wave, imaging
