Effects of Soil Physical Properties on Landmines Detection Using Microstrip Antenna as a Sensor
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 7, 13-24, 2009
Abstract
The effect of soil properties on landmines detection using Microstrip antenna with corrugated ground between the two microstrip elements as a sensor has been investigated. The effect of the electrical properties of the soil as well as the shape of the soil surface on the detection capability of the sensor is studied. The Finite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) has been used to simulate the sensor for landmines detection.
