Abstract

An innovative inverse scattering (IS) method is proposed for the quantitative imaging of pixel-sparse scatterers buried within a lossy half-space. On the one hand, such an approach leverages on the wide-band nature of ground penetrating radar (GPR) data by jointly processing the multi-frequency (MF) spectral components of the collected radargrams. On the other hand, it enforces sparsity priors on the problem unknowns to yield regularized solutions of the fully nonlinear scattering equations. Towards this end, a multi-task Bayesian compressive sensing (MT-BCS) methodology is adopted and suitably customized to take full advantage of the available frequency diversity and of the a-priori information on the class of imaged targets. Representative results are reported to assess the proposed MF-MT-BCS strategy also in comparison with competitive state-of-the-art alternatives.
