Abstract

In this paper we consider the problem of ultra wide band (UWB) electromagnetic wave scattering by a dielectric cylinder. Our main objective is to study the use of UWB Radar for the detection of non-metallic objects in noise and clutter. UWB Radars utilise a very wide transmitted bandwidth to ensure that the target scatters energy at very long, as well as at very short wavelengths. This provides information about the shape and material structure of the object which can then be utilised for detection and classification.
