Abstract

High-resolution Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) images of the ground surface and shallow subsurface are needed in order to detect and identify small buried explosive materials such as Anti-Personnel (AP) landmines. A key requirement to produce sharp visualizations is centimetre-precise sensor positioning with real-time imaging results. We are pursuing two complementary approaches to accomplish this task: 1) Sensor tracking with a CCD camera, 2) and large work volume Indoor GPS. In outdoor field tests both methods have successfully imaged small landmine targets, which has a plastic body of less than 10cm diameter.
