A Ground Penetrating Radar for Landmine Detection
Home Page!

WB00882_.gif (970 bytes)Welcometo theHome Page of the Ground Penetrating Radar Group at the Unversity of Cape Town. This page provides information on the development of low cost, high performance SFCW  Ground Penetration Radars. Our primary application is Landmine detection, however we are actively involved in developing generic radar systems for for any application which requires non-invasive probing into the sub-surface.

MercuryB is alive! We have just completed our first run of test measurements. We covered a few sites around the University, including the passage outide our labs, and down in the car park. TAKE A LOOK FOR YOURSELF

We have begun with the development of the next generation of our SFCW Ground Penetrating Radars. The proposed system will cover a bandwidth from 200MHz to 1600MHz. The design provides for improved dynamic range and measurement speed (w.r.t to MineRad. It will also provide mutiple radar  channels for antenna array and polarimetric measurements. We are also working on a NEW radar data capture, storage, processing and display aoftware that will provide some new and exciting enhancements to radar field measurements.
