In this paper, we discuss some of the leading issues in through the wall radar imaging (TWRI) problems. We focus on the primary system challenges and deliverables, dealing only with the applications of statistical signal and array processing. Applications of antenna design and electromagnetic propagation are equally important, but they are both outside the scope of this paper. The material presented considers key desirable TWRI system properties and features and provides candidate solutions to achieve them. We focus on research performed at Villanova University and demonstrate some of our recent approaches to address system functionalities and requirements using analyses, computer simulations, and real-data. The paper does not attempt to cover all progress made in the field to date nor does it intend to compare the proposed techniques with alternative and competitive methods. It is written with the primary purpose of bringing to the reader many leading challenges and diverse issues worthy of considerations.
