Abstract

Among the technologies used to improve landmine detection, Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) techniques are being developed and tested jointly by “Sapienza” and “Roma Tre” Universities. Using three-dimensional Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) simulations, the electromagnetic field scattered by five different buried objects has been calculated and the solutions have been compared to the measurements obtained by a GPR system on a (1.3 × 3.5 × 0.5) m3 sandbox, located in the Humanitarian Demining Laboratory at Cisterna di Latina, to assess the reliability of the simulations. A combination of pre-calculated FDTD solutions and GPR scans, may make the detection process more accurate.
