One of the problems associated with electromagnetic imaging is that the interaction of photons with targets occurs only on part of their surface, namely those exposed to the transmitted energy rays. Imaging of deep localized objects is very hard especially in the presence of short electromgnetic wavelengths. In this paper we propose a new method for through wall imaging, based on photons and sound waves analysis. The technique investigates Doppler analysis in terms of estimating vibrations generated on infrastructures. The proposed method estimates target's vibration energy in order to perform tomographic imaging of man-made objects, such as buildings. Unlike traditional imaging, this technique allows for through wall imaging. The experimental results are distributed over one case study, where we show the to-mographic imaging of a reinforced concrete infrastructure. We consider this preliminary work very promising for future applications performed from the processing of satellite synthetic aperture radar images.
