Paper Abstract

Horn antennas have small direct coupling between the transmitter and the receiver antenna, and can be made with wide bandwidths. Hence they are suitable for short-distance concrete tests. Field test results are presented in the paper, which show that the S-horn antenna (defined in the text), working at the frequency band 1500 MHz to 3000 MHz, can give clear radar pictures in testing e.g., the re-bar structures within the distance range 30 cm.
