Abstract
AN INNOVATIVE ADVANCEMENT IN SCANNING IMPULSE RADAR ARRAY TECHNOLOGY OFFERS A NEW CAPABILITY TO DETECT BURIED METALLIC AND NONMETALLIC MINES. THE SCANNING IMPULSE RADAR ARRAY SYSTEM WILL INCORPORATE ACTIVE CANCELLATION AND POLARIZATION CONTROL TO ENHANCE THE MINE-SOIL INTERFACE TO PERMIT DETECTION. IN PHASE I OF THIS PROGRAM, A CONCEPT FEASIBILITY DEMONSTRATION WILL BE CONDUCTED. ADVANCED SIGNAL PROCESSING TECHNIQUES WILL BE INCORPORATED IN PHASE II OF THIS PROGRAM TO FURTHER IMPROVE MINE DETECTION PROBABILITIES AND TO REDUCE THE FALSE ALARM RATE. THE SCANNING IMPULSE RADAR ARRAY IS PROJECTED TO BE ABLE TO DETECT MINES FROM A HEIGHT OF UP TO 1O FEET, AND MAY BE CARRIED BY A LOW-FLYING HELICOPTER, OR BE MOUNTED ON BOOM FORWARD OF A MINE-CLEARING VEHICLE.
