The most commonly used remote sensing methods are used in such applications as the aquistic emmission, ground penetration radar (GPR) detection, electromagnetic induction spectroscopy, infrared imaging, thermal neutron activation, nuclear quadruple resonance, X-ray back scattering, neutron back scattering and magnetic anomaly detection. In deciding which type of method has to be used for detection, the variables such as the type of object, material used, position, geographical and environmental conditions, etc. play important roles. In recent years, studies are mainly concentrated on the improvement of detection distance, accuracy, power consumption aspects of remote sensing methods. In the present study, the same concerns are taken into account and a new magnetic measurement system is developed in this context. The system is made up of a sensor network consisting of high sensitive and low power anisotropic magneto-resistive KMZ51 sensors. The sensor network can detect the magnetic anomalies of vertical component of earth's magnetic field created by buried objects as metal covered mines. In the present paper, the effects of physical properties of metal covered materials to magnetic anomalies have been studied. The sensor network is composed of 24 sensors. The voltage levels of each sensor are measured one-by one and transferred to a digital computer where the distribution of the voltages in x-y plane is plotted as 3D graphics. Furthermore, the performance of the system on the detection of buried metallic mines and determination of their shapes have been investigated.


Electrical impedance tomography using the magnetic field generated by injected currents
Birgul, O; Ider, YZ (1996-11-03)
In 2D EIT imaging, the internal distribution of the injected currents generate a magnetic field in the imaging region which can be measured by magnetic resonance imaging techniques. This magnetic field is perpendicular to the imaging region on the imaging region and it can be used in reconstructing the conductivity distribution inside the imaging region. For this purpose, internal current distribution is found using the finite element method. The magnetic fields due to this current is found using Biot-Savar...
An Improved Receiver for Harmonic Motion Microwave Doppler Imaging
Soydan, Damla Alptekin; Irgin, Umit; Top, Can Baris; Gençer, Nevzat Güneri (2020-03-01)
© 2020 EurAAP.Harmonic motion microwave Doppler imaging is a novel imaging modality that combines focused ultrasound and radar techniques to obtain data based on mechanical and electrical properties of the tissue. In previous experimental studies, the Doppler component of the scattered signal is sensed and used to create 2D images of a tumor inside a homogeneous fat phantom. Due to the drawbacks of the receiver configuration, scanning time was high, the signal-to-noise ratio was low, and the multi-frequency...
Development of high performance active materials for microbolometers
Eroğlu, Numan; Akın, Tayfun; Turan, Raşit; Department of Micro and Nanotechnology (2011)
This thesis reports the development of Vanadium Tungsten Oxide (VWO) film as an active detector material for uncooled infrared detectors by using the reactive DC magnetron co-sputtering method. VWO is a doped form of the Vanadium Oxide (VOx) which is known as a prominent material for uncooled infrared detectors with its high TCR, low resistivity, and low noise properties. VOx is a widely preferred material for commercialized uncooled infrared detectors along with its drawbacks. Fabrication is fairly difficu...
Development of Stand-Off Imaging Systems Using Low Cost Plasma Detectors That Work in the GHz to THz Range
Altan, Hakan; Pavia, Joao Pedro; Ribeiro, Marco; Şahin, Asaf Behzat; Kuşoğlu-Sarıkaya, Cemre (Springer-Verlag, 2021-05-01)
Technologies used to detect mm-wave/Terahertz (THz) radiation range from those that are based on temperature changes, direct/indirect transitions or those that detect through the applied electric field. However, many commercially available detectors have limitations in terms of speed and responsivity and are quite expensive. For these reasons, commercially available indicator lamps which are called glow discharge detectors (GDDs) can be a good alternative since they are low cost and can detect microwave to ...
Fusion of forward-looking infrared camera and down-looking ground penetrating radar for buried target detection
Yuksel, Seniha Esen; Akar, Gözde; Ozturk, Serhat (2015-04-23)
In this paper, we propose a system to detect buried disk-shaped landmines from ground penetrating radar (GPR) and forward-looking long wave infrared (FL-LWIR) data. The data is collected from a test area of 500m(2), which was prepared at the IPA Defence, Ankara, Turkey. This test area was divided into four lanes, each of size 25m length by 4m width and 1m depth. Each lane was first carefully cleaned of stones and clutter and then filled with different soil types, namely fine-medium sand, course sand, sandy ...
