Electromagnetic compatibility and Radio spectrum Matters (ERM); Ground- and Wall- Probing Radar applications (GPR/WPR) imaging systems; Part 1: Technical characteristics and test methods
|Publication Date:||1 December 2007|
The present document specifies the requirements for Ground- and Wall- Probing Radar imaging systems applications. Ground Probing Radars (GPR) and Wall Probing Radars (WPR) are used in survey and detection applications.
The scope is limited to GPR andWPR radars, in which the system is in close proximity to the materials being investigated. It does not include radars operated from aircraft or spacecraft.
The GPR/WPR applications in the present document are not intended for communications purposes, and the intended signal is not radiated into free space.
NOTE: Equipment covered by the present document is intended to be used by competent professional personnel.
The present document applies to:
1) Ground Probing Radars (GPR) operating over approximately one decade in the frequency range 30 MHz to 12,4 GHz radiating directly downwards into the ground. Any horizontal radiation from this equipment is caused by leakage and is considered as undesired emission.
2) Wall Probing Radars (WPR) operating in the frequency range 30 MHz to 12,4 GHz radiating directly into a "wall". The "wall" is a building material structure, the side of a bridge, the wall of a mine or another physical structure that absorbs a significant part of the signal transmitted by the radar.
3) Equipment fitted with integral antennas and without antenna connector.
4) Equipment which uses different imaging heads (antennas) with an antenna connector, to allow operation at different frequencies.
The present document does not necessarily include all the characteristics which may be required by a user, nor does it necessarily represent the optimum performance achievable.
