Paper Abstract

Standoff detection of mines and improvised explosive devices by ground penetrating radar has advantages in terms of safety and efficiency. However, the reflected signals from buried targets are often disturbed by those from the ground surface, which vary with the antennas angle, making it more difficult to detect at a safe distance. An understanding of the forward and backward scattering wave is thus essential for improving standoff detection capability. We present some experimental results from using our measurement system for such an analysis.
