Description

Sensing and Imaging: An International Journal publishes peer-reviewed theoretical and experimental papers addressing sensing and imaging technologies and applications in engineering and science.The journal has a broad and multidisciplinary scope, including all varieties of sensor technology (physical, chemical, and biological), signal and image processing, sensor modelling and simulation, and all areas of application. Sensing and Imaging is overseen by an international Editorial Board representing the full scope of the journal. Article types considered for publication include Regular Papers, Topical Reviews and Letters.  ****CALL FOR PAPERS****Topical Issue on Forward-Looking Ground-Penetrating RadarGuest Editors: Steven Bishop (US Army RDECOM CERDEC, Ft. Belvoir, VA, USA); Udo Uschkerat (Fraunhofer Institute for High Frequency Physics and Radar Techniques, Wachtberg, Germany)Sensing and Imaging invites high quality original papers for a topical issue on vehicle mounted Forward-Looking Ground-Penetrating Radar (FL-GPR) related to below, but near, surface sensing. Sought in this thematic issue are civil and military aplications that highlight technical challenges and difficulties enountered with FL-GPR. In contrast to down-looking GPR, which is in use now in both military and civil applications, to include bridge inspection, road quality inspection, and landmine and deeply buried unexploded ordnance detection, the FL-GPR technique provides a limited standoff capability where wave reflections can be in the far field instead of near field. Research in the field of FL-GPR dealing with the difficulties these systems face is the drive and motivation of this special issue.Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:Applications of subsurface imaging, sensor system performance and case studiesSensor design criterionModelling of, targets, surrogates and environment to include the RF spectrum and noise sourcesSignal processing techniques accommodating rough surfaces, multi-look, adaptive noise reduction, side lobe mitigation, and clutter reduction.Algorithm design and implementation on GPGPU or other real-time architecturesRF target features, to include their extraction methods for in-road subsurface anomalies such as voids, tunnels, and explosives or other hazardsFor further information please contact Steven Bishop steven.s.bishop4.civ@mail.mil
