Abstract
A full-polarimetric GPR front-end has been developed. The front-end comprises a generator section, a multi-static antenna system and a receiver based on a multi-channel sampling converter. The front-end allows to perform subsurface imaging with resolution and accuracy sufficient for antipersonnel mine recognition. In comparison with commercially available video impulse GPR systems the key advantages of the front-end are considerably larger bandwidth, very high precision of measurements of scattered field and ability to measure polarimetric structure of the scattered field.
