In this paper the design of an UWB antenna for short-range impulse GPR applications is presented. The antenna consists of an UWB radiator and a metallic shielding. The radiator is based on a modified bow-tie antenna that in comparison with conventional bow-tie antennas shows improvement in the form of higher radiation efficiency and reduced dimension.
