|Abstract: ||Under NASA instrument development programs (PIDDP 2000-2002, MIPD 2003-2005, ESR&T, 2005) we hav been developing miniature ground penetrating radars (GPR) for use in mapping subsurface straigraphy from planetary rovers for Mars and munar applications. The Mars GPR is for deeper penetration (up to 50 m depth) into the Maritan subsurface at moderate resolution (0.5 m) for a geological characterization. As a part of the CRUX (Construction & Resource Utilization Explorer) instrument suite, the CRUX GPR is optimized for a lunar prospecting appliation. It will have shallower penetration (5 m depth) with higher resolution (10 cm) for construction operations including ISRU (in-situ resource utilization). The GPR is a short-pulse materials of differing dialect permittivity....|
