In this repository, a three-dimensional (3-D) holographic MIMO-SAR imaging algorithm is implemented. Important signal processing functions such as near-field multistatic image reconstruction suitable for large MIMO apertures, multi-channel array calibration, and multistatic-to-monostatic conversion are presented in the context of 3-D MIMO-SAR imaging.

An example dataset can be downloaded from the link below:

Hello, Professor,
For the direct holographic image reconstruction using 3D FFT, please check out my final repository at:

Thanks, Muhammet, for your reply.

I see that the shared code produces slice-by-slice 2D images and stack them in depth to create a 3D image. While this is very useful in analyzing the shape, etc., it does not produce a true 3D focused image. Did you try to focus in depth by Interpolation and Inverse 3D FFT following this paper:

Thank you very much,

Hello Professor,

Thank you for your interest in our research. Because we focus on 3-D imaging, we explore the X-Y movement along with the chirp signal in our experiments. We have not tried only X-movement and the chirp signal for 2-D imaging. But I believe that, the code we shared can be used in this scenario also.

In your comment, if you mean moving a MIMO radar along X-axis and using the wideband chirp signal for 3-D imaging, our code already covers this scenario.

Hello Muhammet,

I am Sanjib Sur, an Assistant Professor at the University of South Carolina.

Thanks for sharing this code and data. This is very useful!

I am wondering if you have tried to reconstruct the image using only X-movement and chirp signal. If you have, could you please share the reference code?

Thank you very much,
