Abstract

The performance of a planar elliptical dipole textile antenna for the multi-sensor (impulse GPR&EMI) subsurface detection system is investigated. This is a new application of textile antenna. The textile material of antenna does not create an EMI clutter comparing solid Cu material. The antenna characteristics of the proposed antenna in the multi-sensor head are measured and compared with the simulated ones. A buried target into soil, is successfully detected by the multi-sensor system with the usage of the textile antenna in the GPR sensor. © 2009 IEEE.
