Summary: 
We propose the expansion of the microwave imaging via the space-time beamforming to the multi-static radars. The proposed method can achieve reconstructed images with high quality and robustness. The validity of the proposal are confirmed by numerical simulations and experiments. In the experiments, the phantoms of the margarin and water are prepared, and we can successfully reconstruct the images by the preliminary multi-static radar system.
