Proceedings of the 18th Asia-Pacific Microwave Conference, Yokohama, Japan
In this paper the scattering behavior of two electrically conducting objects (sphere and cylinder) will be described. The objects have been illuminated by a quasi-monostatic ultra-wideband (UWB) radar system. Using very short pulses the transfer function of the targets could be calculated over a wide range of frequencies. Besides the frequency dependence the influence of the polarization was investigated. This allowed the target identification by using only A-scans in two different polarization planes. Furthermore, geometrical parameters of the targets, e. g. the diameter, could be determined from the calibrated data easily.
