Abstract:

Technical report detailing the results of AKELAMichigan Tech Research Institute MTRI team investigations into exploitation of induced vibratory responses in buried targets using GPR. Results show significant improvement in SCR possible using these techniques. Range-Doppler filtering is presented along with enhanced SAR imagery in a laboratory setting demonstrating feasibility of GPR enhancement. Full wave simulations are used to bound performance expectations along with a detailed non-linear classification scheme based on cyclostationarity and dynamic mode analysis.
