Abstract

The safe, reliable, and efficient detection and subsequent removal of buried landmines or other unexploded ordnance (UXO) still remains a challenge. According to Landmine Monitor (2015), almost 60 states suffer the threat of antipersonnel mine contamination, while the total extent of contaminated areas is likely to be thousands of square kilometers and the total number of threat objects may be well over 100 million. In contrast, total annual clearing rates are in the order of about 230,000 landmines and about 200 km2 for the year of 2014, as the number of new contaminations continues to grow. Although non-technical surveillance for the identification of contamination improves slowly, more progress is needed in the basic detection of UXO. Although many new technologies have been investigated the last 20 years, the classical ones like metal detectors and dogs in cooperation with humans operators are still the most commonly ones used today. Hence, the detection process for many scenarios is unacceptably slow and dangerous for the operators, as they are typically less than 1 m away from the threats. Hence, a sensor technology enabling a sufficient stand-off distance for operators and reliable detection at high area throughput is desirable. The following paper describes the physical background, the system design, and representative measurement results of our innovative radar approach to this problem.
