Abstract

A new approach of remote sensing for buried bodies by means of reflected pulses is presented in this article. This method is based on the concept of a scattered field’s analytical continuation (Zaridze et al. in IEEE Trans Antennas Propag 50(1):50–58, 4). Soil properties were deduced using data processing and these properties analyzed. Computer simulation results of both holographic and combined holographic/photographic methods for immersed body visualizations are presented. Several ways to simplify the experimental measurements are also presented. All of these research efforts are directed towards creating a software package for high resolution image recognition devices.
