Abstract
A prototype of an ultra-high frequency radar system (2- 60Hz) has been developed at the RST laboratory within the framework of the HOPE project funded by the European Community and aimed at integrating three sensors (metaldetector, GPR and microwave radiometer) into a unique portable system for humanitarian demining. An advanced prototype of the GPR sensor assembled with the dual metal coil MD sensor has been recently tested at the outdoor facilities of the Joint Research Center in Ispra (Italy). The test field specifically prepared by JRC consists of a unique target scenario that is recreated under different type of soils and surface conditions. The target scenario includes different type of mines and false alarm targets like stone, wood, metallic or plastic objects. The dataset collected during this test are quite interesting for planning the future improvements of both the hardware and the software solutions. The data has been processed with a 3D imaging software specifically developed by the authors for the HOPE project. The preliminary results are encouraging for some scenarios whereas some others seem to be really demanding for the GPR sensor.
