This thesis presents a novel antenna structure that satisfies the challenging requirements of an air coupled high speed ground penetrating radar GPR. The desired GPR system is to achieve high spatial resolution and accurate inspection results while scanning at relatively high speed for highway pavement and bridge deck inspection. This work utilizes the Ultra Wide Band UWB antenna design to achieve both physical and electrical requirements imposed.
