Human being detection in post-disaster scenarios using UWB radars relies on detection of slight variations in time-of-arrival of the backscattered response due to human breathing motion. In this study we investigate experimentally the human breathing cross-section (BCS) in the UWB frequency band as function of aspect angle for three positions of the body and three combinations of antenna-pair polarization. Due to low SNR conditions commonly experienced in such scenarios, main goal in… CONTINUE READING
