Dense spatial measurement of Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) guarantees the sampling criterion for the linear inversion. On the other hand, the oversampled data significantly increases the computational load in the inversion operation, or it requires more complex GPR systems. In this paper, the “frame potential” based approach was suggested to near-optimally select GPR measurements for linear inversion. As it is mainly based on the observation matrix, the suggested approach can be used to select the most informative observations before linear inversion or optimize the GPR spatial sampling criterion. As an example, an antenna array topology optimization problem is presented to
show the effectiveness of this approach.
