Three-dimensional radar imaging is becoming increasingly important in modern warfare systems, leading to an increased need for deeper understanding of the 3D scattering behavior. Fully polarimetric, three-dimensional radar signature data have been collected using 1/16th scale models of tactical targets in several indoor compact radar ranges, corresponding to radar data at X-band. The high-range-resolution data has been collected through a 2D aperture in azimuth and elevation. This data has been processed into 3D coordinates using a standard 3D Fourier transform. The radar signatures have also been rendered into 3D coordinates using Interferometric ISAR techniques. The results of applying compressed sensing techniques to the analysis will be presented. Mathematical 3D correlation analysis has been used to compare the results of each method of 3D reconstruction.
