Random noise radar is rapidly emerging as a promising technique for high-resolution probing and imaging of obscured objects and interfaces. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln has developed and field-tested coherent ultra wideband polarimetric random noise radar systems that show great promise in their ability to estimate Doppler and image target and terrain features. Theoretical studies and extensive field tests using these systems confirm their ability to respond to and utilize phase information from the received signals. This paper summarizes our recent developments in coherent random noise radar imaging and discusses future research directions in this area.
