Abstract
The purpose of this project was to prove the feasibility of detecting hazards in a coal seam using a synthetic pulse radar. The work was conducted in three phases. The first was an analysis of the type of errors that might cause problems, the second was to build a breadboard radar, and the third ws to conduct a field test with the system. The work from each phase is discussed and the results of the field test are presented. The results show propagation of the radar signal through 200 feet of coal along with reflections from 50 feet away. The final section contains recommendations for future development.
