Paper Abstract

Ground penetrating radar (GPR) has been shown to be useful in the detection of landmines. It is of great interest to extend this capability to discrimination between landmines and other objects cluttering the battlefield environment. Wavenumber migration processing (SAR imaging) is used here to show the ability of a GPR to determine both burial depth and size of landmines. Wavenumber migration imaging is summarized and an automated algorithm for extracting size and depth is introduced. A repeatability study is presented for ten signatures from the same metallic landmine. An example of 2D wavenumber migration imaging is presented, as well as, a summary of landmine size and depth estimates from the ten signatures.
