Paper Abstract

In the framework of a project [1] dealing with the enforcement of harbor security, a radar based luggage and parcel scanner was developed, with the inherent characteristics of the use of non ionizing radiation and thus without any health hazards for the involved people. The development of hardware and imaging software, based upon near field synthetic aperture algorithms, and fast mechanical scanning is described and first results of high resolution images of threat objects within parcels are shown.
