Implementation of Wavelet Algorithm to Detect Underground Targets Using GPR
The Detection of targets buried underground viz metallic /nonmetallic is identified using Ground penetrating Radar (GPR) System.  The reflections from the targets are obscured due to noise present in the signal, so it is difficult to extract the original signal from the raw GPR data.  This paper presents the Wavelet algorithm for identification of various targets like metallic and non-metallic. The experiments are conducted in Civil engineering laboratory, IISc Bangalore. Underground Data is acquired using Mala GPR 800MHz ground coupled antenna was used to identify the targets. By implementation of wavelet algorithm, it is easy to classify the targets. Analyzing some statistical parameters like kurtosis, skewness and entropy are tabulated by comparing the values of mother wavelets like Haar, Debauchees, Symlets etc.
