    Subsurface radar techniques are increasingly being used for the detection and location of buried artefacts and structures within the upper regions of the earth's surface. The paper reviews the work done to date in this field, laying emphasis on the range of applications and the need for system design to match the intended application. An overall design strategy is outlined, together with a more de... View full abstract»

    Experimental results are presented which illustrate the capabilitity of a single-frequency microwave holographic scheme to image both metallic and plastic pipes at a depth of 0.33 m in wet soil with a covering layer of concrete paving stones. The data acquisition system utilises a crossed dipole antenna scanning above the interface recording two orthogonal polarisations at each point on a two-dime... View full abstract»

    A wideband microwave holographic method for imaging buried objects with high azimuth and range resolution is described. The method incorporates a synthetic aperture approach in pulse radar systems, originally designed for the pulse-echo imaging, to improve azimuth resolution. The resolving capability of the method is discussed in terms of controlling parameters such as the synthetic aperture lengt... View full abstract»

  • Underground mapping of utility lines using impulse radar

    Publication Year: 1988, Page(s):343 - 353
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1338 KB)

    The use of radar in an underground environment presents a number of practical difficulties. The paper describes a specific application to the mapping of buried utility lines, and other objects below city streets, prior to excavation for repair work or new construction. The system combines an impulse radar, using crossed polarised dipole antennas for transmitting and receiving, respectively, with a... View full abstract»

  • FMCW radar for hidden object detection

    Publication Year: 1988, Page(s):354 - 361
    Cited by:  Papers (6)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1077 KB)

    The use of FMCW radar for the detection of hidden objects at short distances is described. The factors which influence the type of radar and the optimum parameters for FMCW radar are discussed. It is shown that FMCW radar is good for situations where a high resolution is needed at a short distance, such as the detection of flaws in building materials. Practical systems are described. Both FFT and ... View full abstract»

  • Early developments in ground-probing radar at ERA Technology Ltd.

    Publication Year: 1988, Page(s):362 - 370
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1412 KB)

    A survey of the developments in ground-probing radar technology undertaken by the team at ERA Technology between 1980 and 1985 is presented. These span all of the contributing areas of technology including hardware, software and field experience. Radars of advanced design with wide dynamic ranges, high resolution and capable of much higher data rates than previous systems have been built. They inc... View full abstract»

  • Geophysical radar design

    Publication Year: 1988, Page(s):371 - 379
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1589 KB)

    The article begins by setting out issues of policy and system architecture and design which have informed the development of impulse radar systems at CCL. We then describe in outline and illustrate various systems including a helicopter-mounted surveying instrument, a ground-based impulse radar test-bed, and an instrument for investigating performance in a borehole. The thrust of the article is th... View full abstract»

  • Comparison of the seismic and ground probing radar methods in geological surveying

    Publication Year: 1988, Page(s):380 - 391
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1778 KB)

    The use of ground probing radar has increased significantly over the past few years in the civil engineering field. As a geophysical technique it has much in common with the seismic reflection method. The information derived from both methods is displayed as a time/distance cross-section, which is very similar in appearance to a geological cross-section. However, the time section can only be conve... View full abstract»
