New developments and applications for radiometric imaging systems are discussed. The basic operating principles of radiometry are reviewed and results are presented from two different Ka band (36 GHz) radiometric test beds. Passive weather detection is presented with actual results from an airborne imaging radiometer. Thunderstorm and cloud formations have been detected at ranges in excess of 20 NM. Tactical ground mapping and target detection is also presented with results from a ground based high resolution imaging radiometer. Enhanced target detection using a low power bistatic illuminator is demonstrated. An inverse filter algorithm has been developed to attain better than real beam resolution in high contrast images. Raw and enhanced images are presented for comparison.
