We are developing a novel GPR system for stand off landmine detection. This is a bistatic GPR system, which use a TEM horn antenna for a transmitter and a passive optical electric field sensor as a receiver. A small size passive optical sensor will be scanned on the ground surface, and the acquired signal is used for synthetic aperture processing. Since the receiver is very small, it is suitable for scanning on the ground, where landmines can be buried. Fundamental laboratory test shows its capability of imaging of buried objects.
