  • Comparing electromagnetic induction and ground penetrating radar techniques for estimating soil moisture content

    Previous studies have demonstrated the capacity of electromagnetic geophysical methods for estimating soil moisture content. In this study, electromagnetic induction (EMI) and ground-penetrating radar (GPR) measurements were coincidently collected along a fixed survey line to evaluate temporal changes in apparent electrical conductivity and electromagnetic direct ground wave velocity, respectively; surveys were collected at three sites (i.e., sand, sandy loam and silt loam) during the course of a complete annual cycle of soil conditions. These two geophysical data sets correlated well during the course of the annual cycle at the silt loam site. Correlation between the two data sets was not as strong at the other two sites, with the sand site showing the lowest correlation values. Further, the geophysical data and gravimetric water content measurements obtained from the upper 0.5 metres indicate higher correlation estimates at the finer grained silt loam site relative to the sand and sandy loam sites.

  • DSP implementation of rapid imaging of data obtained from UWB radar for use in a pavement inspection GPR system

    In the pavement inspection ground-penetrating radar system, the antenna array is mounted on a vehicle, which moves at a high speed. To image the pavement, the data in the frequency domain need to be processed rapidly on a digital signal processor (DSP). The DSP can be made to operate at a higher speed when the processing is based on a fixed-point data type. In this paper, the responses from far targets are shown to suffer from precision loss when they are processed on a fixed-point data type. A compensation filter to prevent the precision loss is presented. The filter is applied in the frequency domain before the time-domain transformation. The filter is applied to the measured data using ultra-wideband radar and shown to generate clear images of both near and far targets.

  • Ultra Wide Band horn antenna design for Ground Penetrating Radar: A feeder practice

    Ultra-Wide Band (UWB) technology in Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) imaging has been an interested research topic for the last couple of decades. Although there have been a lot of work and research conducted on this subject, there c still interested research matters that has to be studied. UWB directional antennas are one of the critical components for UWB-GPR applications. The parameters of the antennas that are used within the system affect the performance of the application. The horn antenna; for example, can give the focusing ability needed in some applications thanks to its high directivity feature. Although there are many parameters that affect the design of a Horn antenna, aperture size and the feeder type are commonly used parameters to obtain wider frequency operation. In this study, the effect of different feeding structures on frequency bandwidth for a fixed waveguide dimensions are investigated and the results are shared. For this purpose, various feeding structures that are straight wire feeder, spherical feeder, cylindrical feeder and conical feeder are examined and the simulated and the measured bandwidth results are presented. Furthermore, we propose a new feeder type that provides better simulation results in terms of bandwidth is introduced. With this new structure, the horn antenna is optimized using an antenna simulation software; CST-Microwave Studio and the corresponding produced antenna is measured to complete the design.

  • Dismount modeling and detection from small aperture moving radar platforms

    Future advanced radar systems must detect targets of diminishing radar cross section (RCS) at low radial velocity, in demanding clutter and interference environments. Presently, a deficiency in radar detection performance exists between the capabilities of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) for fixed target indication and space-time adaptive processing (STAP) for ground moving target indication (GMTI) of targets with low ground track velocity. Dismounts, individuals or groups running, walking, or crawling, constitute a class of targets that falls into this netherworld between SAR and STAP. While possessing low RCS levels and radial velocities, dismount detection is rendered even more challenging due to their complicated non-linear phase histories that give rise to significant micro-Doppler energies. In this paper we develop a physiological human-gait model for multi-channel moving radar platforms. We characterize the dismount detection performance of a notational UAV system using linear phase, quadratic phase and sinusoidal phase filters. Finally, we summarize our results and present areas of future work.

  • Fracture imaging in sandstones using high resolution ground penetrating radar

    Ground penetrating radar (GPR) is a technique that employs radar waves to survey subsurface geological or man-made structures. In this survey, a high resolution, high frequency Pulse EKKO 1000 system using operating frequencies of 225, 450 and 900 MHz was used to detect subsurface structural and sedimentological features in the Triassic sandstones of Thurstaston Common, Wirral, England. The Pulse EKKO 1000 system is essentially a continuous profiling system where transducers are moved across a survey line at approximately constant velocity. Measured fix points are appended to the profile as surveying takes place. The mode of operation for the survey was single fold, fixed offset, reflection profiling and a typical 20 m survey line at Thurstaston generated about 2 megabytes of data. An estimation of radar wave velocity versus depth was made from a common mid point method (CMP) where the direct ground wave gave a radar wave velocity of 0.08 nsec per metre for the Triassic sandstones. Digital GPR data require considerable editing and processing to produce a final image. Processing techniques widely used in seismic data processing were adapted for use in the processing of radar profiles. All data display and processing was achieved using Pulse EKKO software running on a 486 personal computer.

  • An Airborne Radar Sensor for Maritime and Ground Surveillance and Reconnaissance—Algorithmic Issues and Exemplary Results

    The pod integrated variant of the airborne SmartRadar by AIRBUS Defence and Space, mounted under the wing of a Learjet 35 aircraft, is used as a testbed to develop advanced radar modes. In particular, it offers the capabilities of a multiphase-center active electronically steered array (AESA) antenna and of a flexible, wide-bandwidth radar core. During the last 2 years, the already- operated synthetic aperture radar (SAR) and ground moving target indication (GMTI) modes have been supplemented by newly developed maritime modes. This overview paper discusses the new maritime modes, presents recent results from our 2013/14 flight campaigns, and points out some interesting technological aspects with focus on algorithmic issues. In particular, maritime modes for open-sea surveillance, maritime MTI, and inverse SAR imaging of ships are discussed in detail. All of these radar modes make use of the instantaneous repointing capability of the fixed-mounted AESA antenna.

  • A history of battlefield surveillance radar

    The technology and system design of radars to survey a battlefield has a relatively short history, starting in about 1968. The early technology was developed to provide detection of both fixed and moving targets, along with discovery and tracking of military positions. And the system operational architecture required either long standoff range or flying on a small, remotely piloted air vehicle. These diverse applications stimulated significant development of lightweight electronically scanned antennas, adaptive detection of targets in severe clutter, and transmission of critical target information over modest bandwidth data links. This paper will summarize these critical technologies that have led to several modern RPV radars.

  • Common waveform for simultaneous SAR and GMTI

    Surveillance RADARs normally share time for detecting fixed and moving targets. With modern digital waveform synthesis and high performance computing, it is feasible to collect signals that use space, time and frequency encoding to simultaneously operate in GMTI and SAR modes. This paper summarizes a new waveform and adaptive RADAR architecture with the potential for simultaneous SAR and GMTI operation, along with a detailed simulation of target detections.

  • FDTD simulation and GPR study in Rwanda tropical soil using permittivity variation

    It is very useful to know the soil capabilities on different external impacts acting on it, especially for electromagnetic waves from Ground Penetrating Radar. In the underground detection domain actually, dealing with soil permittivity is one of the challenging research problems nowadays. In this paper, we study tropical soil constitution, taking in account the tropical climate region and we took Rwanda as a case study. Rwanda's elevation ranges from 1,000m (south and east) to 4,500m above sea level. The “thousand hills” terrain is dominated from north to south by a watershed (2.500m high) that separates the basin of the Congo River from that of the Nile and by the Ibirunga volcano chain. In spite of its proximity (2 degrees south) to the equator, the country enjoys a fine spring climate (due to its altitude), with two rainy seasons and two dry seasons. In fact, when considering the tropical climate region with his considerable rainfall period, it is better to collect information regarding the zone in consideration. Using Finite Difference Time Domain(FDTD) simulation with GPRMax simulator, and varying the permittivity, the aim of this paper is to have a benchmark of dry and rainfall season; this will help when doing measurements with the GPR instruments and others non destructive tools. In this paper, we analysed the clay soil (one of the component of Rwandan pedology) and from the variation of dry clay to wet clay associated with different fixed frequencies (300MHz, 600MHz, 900MHz, 1200MHz and 1500MHz). For each fixed frequency, we vary the clay permittivity from dry to wet clay and analysed data after simulation. From this benchmark, and in the near future work, we will use the GPR instrument and the Time Division Reflectometry(TDR) to verify the simulation results.
