Paper Abstract

Improvement of resolution is the challenging issue in Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) and that is greatly desired to increase in order to get the clear imaging of very closely buried targets. GPR has been approved as very successful technology for various kinds of investigations & detection of buried targets. In this paper, the application possibility of super resolution technique MUSIC (Multiple Signal Classification) algorithm is examined because of its superior results. Moreover, the conventional FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) has been utilized to get higher precision receiving signal level. Combined Processing Method (CPM) oftime domain response of MUSIC and IFFT (Inverse FFT) has been proposed for the first time to get high resolution and high precision receiving signal level. Simulation and experiment result show that the proposed method has high resolution and high precision receiving signal level than other conventional signal processing approach.
