Abstract
An ultra-wideband frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) radar was used to detect plastic anti-personnel (AP) mines. The study was conducted sign AP mines that were flush buried in a test bed prepared form crushed gravel. The ultra- wideband radar resolved the signals reflected from the top and bottom surfaces of the AP mines. It was not possible to detect these mines using the surface reflection as a detection threshold because of the high ground clutter. However, the ability to detect these mines improved greatly when the sub-surface reflections were used as a detection threshold. The study demonstrated that an ultra-wideband FMCW radar can be used to reject the ground clutter and to detect the AP mines buried at shallow depth.
