A novel approach for the design and the simulation of a Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) environment by means of finite difference time domain (FDTD) methods is presented.nSimulating GPR data is essential for the development and comparison of algorithms using
exactly defined data. The development of the model and the selection of optimum parametersnfor the electromagnetic FDTD field simulator are addressed. It is furthermore discussed how tonsolve the problem of necessary changes to the model by means of an ActiveX server control, which allows to control the whole functionality of the FDTD solver from an external Win32 application providing a possibility for the automation of the GPR simulation. Several simulation results are presented. The success of the approach is presented through the excellent quality of the results achieved.
