Paper Abstract

Microwave imaging has recently been presented as a promising technique for detecting buried and foliage-obscured objects. In preparation of a project for the detection of anti-personnel mines (APMs), first test measurements have been performed at the European Microwave Signature Laboratory (EMSL), which is a measurement system based on an ultrawide bandwidth polarimetric SAR. The followed approach for the detection of small plastic mines together with some examples of the resulting radar images are presented in this paper.
