Abstract
A radar for use in very wet conditions such as tunnels, sewers and aqueducts is described. Operator safety under such conditions is paramount and communications link is presented which provides data transfer plus 2 way voice communication from the tunnel operator to the surface with good electrical isolation of equipment used. Antenna problems, such as various forms of back radiation, which can lead to misinterpretation of radar data, are discussed.
