MIMO radar for imaging is a quite new and promising research field with a big potential for various applications. Three different imaging radars based on the MIMO principle are currently developed at Fraunhofer FHR. This paper describes the ground based X-band MIMO radar MIRA-CLE X. This radar consists of 16 transmit and 14 receive antennas which are arranged in a special way to synthesize a fully and equally spaced virtual antenna array of 224 elements during signal processing. First image results of MIRA-CLE X are presented and discussed.
