Design of ground penetrating radar for humanitarian demining

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedings/Edited volumeConference contributionScientificpeer-review


    This paper describes the process of the design of a rdar for application in a system for humanitarian demining. The application requires new solutions to assist in solving the problem of clearing areas of anti-personnel mines. The initial technical requirements on the radar were vaguely known, but were developed in more detail during the first research activities. The concept of Technology Readiness Level is introduced in order to hint at the further development needed to transfer the technology from the domain of research tot the actual fielded usage. It has been of prime importance for the viability and quality of the design that researchers from many differnt groups have contributed by both complementing proposed solutions form other team members and are providing fraternal comments. The paper provides a number of examples of such contributions. The results of the project performed at the Delft University have gained the interest of industrial manufacturers. Currently these results are being transferred to industry.
