    Hi everyone.

    I am currently involved in a project which is using UWB technology to sense/localise/image objects behind walls. The requirement is not to have any transceivers in the room that is going to be imaged. Currently, the idea I have is to detect the backscatter UWB pulses reflected from the objects inside. However, the main problem is to build the transmitter and have a receiver with receiver sensitivity high enough to detect the backscatter pulses.

    Does anyone have any experience related to this topic or UWB technology, please help me out with any ideas that are feasible.

    Thanks a lot!
