Paper Abstract

Ground penetrating radar (GPR) is emerging as viable technology for rapid and accurate landmine detection. Although GPR has been successfully used for landmine and subsurface object detection, the performance of GPR is dependent on the type of medium the subsurface object is buried in. In a previous paper, we compared the imaging response of two antennas in three soils to steel spheres[1]. In this paper, we compare the imaging response of spheres of different materials in different soils and compute energy levels for three regions of interest in the images.
