Abstract
A principal factor in buried conductor detection is consideration of the ground properties. In particular, the conductivity and relative permittivity of the soil can have impacts on the propagation of transmitted waves and reradiated fields, as well as the resonances that can be developed in a length of conductor for schemes that exploit this phenomenon. A sensor prototype was developed to measure both conductivity and relative permittivity. The sensor design is described in detail and test results from a functional test in a simulated environment.
