Abstract

The effectiveness of the ground penetrating radar (GPR) imaging process and its capability of correctly reconstructing buried objects is strictly bounded to a correct acquisition strategy, both in terms of data density and regularity. In some GPR applications, such as landmine detection, these requirements may not be fulfiled due to logistical limitations and environmental obstacles. In the light of autonomous platform, possibly driven by a positioning device, the knowledge of the maximum affordable grid irregularity is essential. This experimental work, employing a data set acquired at a landmine test site, provides a demonstration that the same information content could be maintained even with a sparser data grid, compared to the commonly adopted requirements, mitigating the pressing demand for a precise samples positioning.
