Step Frequency Ground Penetrating Radar Characterization and Federal Evaluation Tests
Initially, SF GPR emission characterization measurements were conducted to achieve the following primary objectives:
Data collected at the FAA Technical Center in March 2009 indicated that follow-up measurements were needed to achieve the objectives listed above (with minor revisions) and to evaluate the SF GPR in greater detail at low frequencies.
The revised objectives for the follow-up measurements were as follows:
In addition, a coordination procedure was proposed to provide a framework for system users to operate SF GPR responsibly under NTIA rules. The proposed coordination procedure is described in detail in appendix A.
