Radio frequency (RF) tomography is an imaging technique based upon a set of distributed transmitters and receivers surrounding the area under observation. This method requires prior knowledge of the transmitters' and receivers' locations. In some circumstances the transmitters may be uncooperative, while in other cases extrinsic emitters may be used as source of opportunity. In these scenarios, RF tomography should operate in a passive modality. A previous work postulated the principles and feasibility of passive RF tomography. This research further develops the underlying theory through concise and ad-hoc signal processing. Experimental verification and validation corroborate the effectiveness of passive RF tomography for object detection and imaging.
