Abstract
A full-wave model is developed for electromagnetic scattering from buried and surface land mines, taking rigorous account of the lossy, dispersive and potentially layered properties of soil. The theoretical results are confirmed via synthetic aperture radar (SAR) measurements, performed using the US Army Research Laboratory's BoomSAR, with which fully polarimetric ultra-wideband SAR imagery is produced. The theoretical model is used to predict wave phenomenology in various environments. Since the efficacy of radar-based subsurface sensing depends strongly on the soil properties, we perform a parametric study of the dependence of such on the target RCS and on possible land-mine resonances.
