This paper addresses the problem of scene reconstruction in conjunction with wall-clutter mitigation for com- pressed multi-view through-the-wall radar imaging (TWRI). We consider the problem where the scene behind- the-wall is illuminated from different vantage points using a different set of frequencies at each antenna. First, a joint Bayesian sparse recovery model is employed to estimate the antenna signal coefficients simultaneously, by exploiting the sparsity and inter-signal correlations among antenna signals. Then, a subspace-projection technique is applied to suppress the signal coefficients related to the wall returns. Furthermore, a multi-task linear model is developed to relate the target coefficients to the image of the scene. The composite image is reconstructed using a joint Bayesian sparse framework, taking into account the inter-view dependencies. Experimental results are presented which demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach for multi-view imaging of indoor scenes using a reduced set of measurements at each view.
