Recently, microwave imaging under random field illuminations has attracted many interests. This paper theoretically analyzes and experimentally implements a qualitative microwave radar imaging system suitable for 2-D object. It can be customized on the demands of the desired object size and imaging resolution. Based on random illuminations generated by a minimum number of antenna elements, an analytical equation can be used to reconstruct the image of the object in near real time. The simple-structured and cost-effective imaging system can be implemented in microwave, millimeter-wave, and even sub-THz frequency bands, having promising potentials for various microwave imaging applications.
