Pilot Study on Development of GPR System Using Hyperlog Antenna
GPR (Ground-Penetrating Radar) is known as one of a Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) method capable of detecting objects underground. Antenna is an important part in this system as the function is to produce and detect electromagnetic wave. As one of the alternatives, hyper log antenna which has high bandwidth can be used in the development of GPR system. In this paper, the GPR system has been developed using hyper log antenna and network analyzer. Based on the results, the developed GPR system is capable of detecting a circular iron plat buried in sand around 0.06 meter depth. This shows that the hyper log antenna is suitable for use in GPR system.
