In this paper, a convolutional neural network (CNN)-based deep learning (DL) architecture for the solution of an electromagnetic inverse problem related to imaging of the shape of the perfectly electric conducting (PEC) rough surfaces is addressed. The rough surface is illuminated by a plane wave and scattered field data is obtained synthetically through the numerical solution of surface integral equations. An effective CNN-DL architecture is implemented through the modelling of the rough surface variation in terms of convenient spline type base functions. The algorithm is numerically tested with various scenarios including amplitude only data and shown that it is very effective and useful.
