Paper Abstract

It is required that the locations of underground installations are made clear on the viewpoint of safety. It is very important to sufficiently investigate the position (for example, depth, horizontal position) of the pipes before the piping work is carried out. However, it is not easy to get the accurate information on the ordinary matter. Because of the size of underground prospecting system and crowded traffic problem, we often could not bring any useful equipment. Thus, the purpose of the present investigation is to miniaturize such system. And we experimentally produced a small prospecting system which could probe underground installations which were near range. The design of the small circuit with high frequency and the small antenna were mainly examined. As a result, it is shown that the object buried in the ground which is ahead at a distance of 50 cm can be prospected with high resolution.
