PULSAR is an Ultra Wide-Band radar developed in a collaboration between the CELAR (French Technical Centre for Armament Electronics) and the IRCOM (Research Institute of Microwave and Optical Communications) in order to detect quickly buried mines on a large area. This paper deals with the recent development efforts on this system, especially on a new pulse generator and a new UWB antenna. It also deals with the possibility to use several antennas to build an antennas array in order to improve the radar (axis gain higher, radiating pattern more directing).
