Abstract

The University of Nebraska has developed a unique ultrawideband polarimetric random noise radar for subsurface probing applications. The radar system was used to measure the backscatter characteristics of buried metallic as well as non-metallic objects which primarily mimicked the sizes and shapes of land mines. These objects were buried in a specially designed sand box at different depths and relative orientations. The data collected on a variety of targets are expected to be useful in developing target detection and discrimination algorithms using this novel radar system.
