An investigation was conducted to determine the feasibility of using noncontacting sensor techniques to rapidly evaluate airfield pavements. A literature survey, laboratory test, and field tests were conducted. A broadband video pulse radar system was found to be the most successful. During field tests with this radar system, trenches, pipes, and various soil interfaces were observed and verified. The report described the work done, the video radar system, and a plan for future development of the system to meet pavement evaluation requirements. Author
