    Abstract

    In this paper, the devlopment of ultra-wideband (YWB) array-based time-domain radar sensor for near-field imaging is described. The radar sensor is designed to be used within a vehicle-mounted multisensor system for humanitarian demining. The main novelty of the radar lies in the system design with a single transmitter and multichannel receiver. Design of the UWB antenna array is also novel. The radar produces 3-D images of subsurface by 1-D mechanical scanning. Thee imaging capability of the radar is realized via electronic steering of the receive antenna footprint in a cross-scan direction and synthetic aperture processing in an along-scan direction. Imaging via footprint steering allows for drastic increase in the scanning speed.
