It is proposed to use the tomographic approach to the problem of detecting and imaging concealed utility networks. This approach is based on generating the three-dimensional radio images of the space being explored from the results of measuring its location wave projections in a dual-polarization measurement mode. The problem is solved by focusing radiation first on the “air–dielectric” interface and then inside the dielectric. Experimental data processing results and reconstructed threedimensional radio tomograms are provided for a “twisted pair” cable and a fiber-optic cable with no metallic inclusions. The results confirm the operability of the approach.
