21 September 2004 An algorithm for UWBR detection of tripwires
Author Affiliations +
In this paper we describe the use of a horizontally polarised Ultra-Wideband imaging radar to detect metal tripwires. A limited set of experimental measurements was processed using a wire detection algorithm designed to discriminate wires from clutter. A common threshold applied to the algorithm output successfully discriminated wires deployed at four orientations. Three independently measured cases rendered consistent results when processed using the same algorithm. These results suggest that further development is warranted to establish the performance on a statistical basis.
