This paper describes site measurements and resulting images of buried objects made with the Earth Penetration Radar Imaging System (EPRIS) developed by Coleman Research Corporation (CRC). EPRIS makes use of frequency stepped radar technology and synthetic aperture imaging algorithms for nonintrusive characterization and imaging of buried objects, contamination, and geological or hydrological features. This paper is an extension or follow-up to CRC's EPRIS paper presented at last year's OE/AEROSPACE convention in Orlando, FL. It gives a brief description of the EPRIS system and contains the results from several DOE site surveys. These results include 2D and 3D images of buried test targets as well as images of actual buried waste and hydrological or geological features. The paper concludes with the recommendations or suggestions that should be followed up on future efforts.
