Abstract : The time-domain range for transmitting a subnanosecond pulse and recording its return from a conducting object is described in this report. The advantages and problems associated with Prony's algorithm are given; the efforts and progress toward overcoming the problems are described; and the results of applying Prony's algorithm to the returns from a hemisphere and a cylinder are shown. The areas of need, both theoretical and experimental, are detailed. (Author)
