Abstract

In this study a synthetic aperture radar-based reconstruction technique is applied to focus the unwanted disruptive effects in the two-dimensional ground penetrating radar data. The formulation of the applied Matched Filter Algorithm (MFA) which completely removes the hyperbolic effects is presented in detail. To test the capability of the proposed technique an experimental measurement setup is constructed in the laboratory and MFA is operated to gathered real GPR data. Thanks to the applied technique, high-resolution focused B-Scan GPR images are successfully obtained.
