Paper Abstract

Different types of anti-tank surface mines were measured on a turntable in a n anechoic chamber, and modelled with the German SIMPRASS model. In addition, several flights over a realistic minefield were performed with a 35 GHz and a 94 GHz radar operated in parallel in a SAR configuration. It is found that typical RCS values of AT mines at mmW frequencies are in the region between -18dBsm and -30dBsm. Therefore, they are detectable by airborne mmW radar only for a resolution cell size comparable to the physical size of the mine itself depending on the background clutter type.
