Alternatives to focal-plane detector arrays have emerged in recent years and are now being widely investigated. One of the most promising of these are single-pixel imaging techniques. Single-pixel techniques recreate a scene using the knowledge of projected patterns and the measured backscattered signals. This research investigates the implications of using idealised patterns, Fourier-transformed patterns and camera-captured patterns generated by plane wave decomposition methods. Hadamard patterns are projected into the far-field of the phased-array modulator source and used for robust reconstruction in a reflective arrangement. The choice of the optimal pattern sets from these sources are used for single-pixel imaging reconstruction and compressed sensing. The technique is robust to poor signal-to-noise conditions and is applicable in cases where a limited number of measurements are possible. Our technique and methodology can be further applied to any region of the electromagnetic spectrum where phased-array sources are available, such as in the radar regime.
