We propose a novel blind image deconvolution (BID) regularization framework for compressive passive millimeter-wave (PMMW) imaging systems. The proposed framework is based on the variable-splitting optimization technique, which allows us to utilize existing compressive sensing reconstruction algorithms in compressive BID problems. In addition, a non-convex lp quasi-norm with 0 <; p <; 1 is employed as a regularization term for the image, while a simultaneous auto-regressive (SAR) regularization term is utilized for the blur. Furthermore, the proposed framework is very general and it can be easily adapted to other state-of-the-art BID approaches that utilize different image/blur regularization terms. Experimental results, obtained with simulations using a synthetic image and real PMMW images, show the advantage of the proposed approach compared to existing ones.
