Abstract

An ultra wide band high dynamic range GPR radar - has been tested for buried victims detection. After a building collapse, for example due to an earthquake, the priority of search and rescue teams is to localize people trapped under debris. Several tools are available to help the detection of buried humans, such as micro-cameras, high sensitivity microphones, and so on. Many of these tools present some limitations such as low penetration depth and high susceptibility to external noises. In this paper the authors test the use of an Enhanced Ultra Wide Band (UWB), Continuous Wave Stepped Frequency (CW-SF) Ground penetrating radar as rescue equipment. The radar has been experimented both in controlled environment, and in a real test site, at the Fire-fighters Station of Pisa, Italy.
