Large scale imaging with spatially-coded waveforms

A system for locating earth cavities, or items in a building, or structural characteristics having a plurality of transmitters that generate at least a portion of a waveform. Each transmitter divides the waveform into sub-chirp intervals and transmits a known sub-chirp interval from a known location to contact an article of interest. The resulting sub-chirp intervals become a leakage signal that is then received and processed by a receiver. The receiver therein approximates a cavity size, article size, article composition, article location, earth cavity location, or other structural characteristic.
