MICROSTRIP ANTENNA WITH CORRUGATED GROUND PLANE SURFACE AS A SENSOR FOR LANDMINES DETECTION

Abstract:
A proposed sensor for landmines detection consists of two parallel microstrip antennas placed on the same ground plane and with corrugated ground surface between the arrays has been investigated. The microstrip patch array with corrugated ground surface has the advantage of a low mutual coupling compared with the classic arrays. The Finite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) is used to simulate the sensor for landmines detection.
