Paper Abstract

In this paper, vehicle-mounted ultra-wide band (UWB) radar is studied for detection of roadside improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Simulations and measurements have been performed to study the radar system set-up, target scattering, and data processing. The challenges of UWB radar for target visibility within the ground clutter, locating with limited angular diversity, and discrimination of buried bomb shells have been encountered and explored. Possible solutions to overcome these challenges are investigated.
