A signal processing technique is developed to reduce clutter due to ground bounce in ground penetrating radar (GPR) measurements. This technique is especially useful when a GPR is used to detect subsurface antipersonnel mines. The GPR clutter is modeled using a simple parametric model. Buried mine and clutter contributions are separated through a pair of coupled iterative procedures. The algorithm outperforms existing clutter reduction approaches and also yields target features that are useful for detection and identification of these mines. The proposed technique effectively reduces clutter resulting in a significant decrease in false alarm rates.
