This report investigates an approach to characterising Ground Probing Radar (GPR) backscatter echoes from landmines using linear combinations of exponentially damped sinusoids. The GPR signatures of surrogate landmines and PVC cylinders buried in dry sand are measured using an impulse radar system with centre frequency of 1.4 GHz and a 90% bandwidth. The GPR signal parameters are represented as sets of complex poles computed from a series of neighbouring signatures recorded over each target… CONTINUE READING
