Abstract:

We have developed innovative signal processing techniques to advance the performance of the vehicle mounted and handheld based ground penetrating radars for the detection of subsurface objects that are low in metal content and hard to detect. The derived techniques include the exploitation of frequency responses of the subsurface objects, the application of auto-regressive modelling and the use of matrix decomposition method. The developed techniques have been transferred to the DoD and the DoDs contractors that build the ground penetrating radar detection systems.
