An algorithm for three-dimensional (3D) target reconstruction is proposed in this study. Such an algorithm is based on the use of 2D inverse synthetic aperture radar (ISAR) imaging and interferometry. The proposed algorithm is able to operate with both bistatic and squinted geometry, thus allowing its applicability to all possible geometrical configurations. A mathematical foundation of the algorithm is provided in this study followed by a validation through the use of both simulated and real data.
