This letter aims at analyzing the potentialities of the ground-based microwave radar interferometry technique for the dynamic characterization of civil infrastructures. This technique has been applied to estimate the fundamental dynamic parameters of the reinforced concrete Musmeci bridge in Basilicata region (southern Italy). The results have been validated by the comparison with the ones obtained applying consolidated techniques using data from accelerometers and tromometers. The good agreement obtained could suggest the joint application of such techniques as a new technological approach to set up a non-invasive and non-destructive evaluation procedure for structural health monitoring of infrastructures.
