Microwave tomography enhanced Forward Looking GPR: A feasibility analysis
Vehicle mounted Forward Looking Ground Penetrating Radar systems are an attractive technology in a large number of civil and military applications that bring new challenges to both hardware design and data processing approaches. In this paper, a microwave tomographic reconstruction technique has been adapted to fulfill the requirements of this particular measurement setup. Such approach is a model based imaging procedure, which exploits the Born Approximation to represent the scattering phenomenon and accounts for the air-soil interface. A preliminary assessment of the achievable imaging capabilities is given by processing synthetic data.
