Paper Abstract

Ground-reflected clutter is often a performance-limiting factor in ground-penetrating radar detection of near-surface targets including anti-personnel mines. When a down-looking antenna is scanned across the surface this reflection produces a strong band in the image, which obscures shallow targets. Imperfections in the system impulse response can produce similar bands. Radar images of buried targets can be degraded by these forms of clutter.
