Paper Abstract

The detection of improvised explosive devices (IED) is still a challenging task. Important components of these IEDs are often thin pressure plate structures which connect the activator with the explosive device by wires. The detection of wires could therefore be useful to detect the IEDs, since the detection of the explosives itself by identifying specific characteristics is impossible for many sensor types, and quite expensive and time consuming for few being able to perform this task. In this paper investigations on the detection of thin wires using Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) synthetic aperture radar (SAR) are discussed.
