dc.description.abstract Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is widely recognised as an operationally useful sensor for mine detection as it can offer better detection performance than the ubiquitous metal detector in the presence of low-metal content mines. However, GPR has to overcome many potential sources of false alarm due to clutter and battlefield debris, which lower the efficiency of the sensor. This paper analyses a set of experimental data collected in a recent multi-offset GPR measurement campaign with inert landmines composed of different assemblies buried in sandy soil. The aim of the work is to evaluate the key differences observed by a radar system when the transmitter and the receiver are moved apart, as a function of their distance and hence when the illuminated section of the target is diversified. The results of the comparison between the collected multi-offset profiles show that using a bistatic geometry could represent a strategy to reconstruct composite objects with finer and better details. en_UK
