Abstract This paper presents a design for an Electromagnetic Wave Radar system as moisture detector using NIUSRP 2932. The proposed system was to capture reflected signal for varying moisture from 0%, 20%, 40% up to 100% for different materials like loam soil, sand and ridge gravel. The proposed design has been simulated in LabView along with the Horn antenna and a laptop to get the A-scan and B-scan for the two set-ups and was found that amplitude increases along with the moisture content. A significant reflected signal was observed showing the effect of moisture contents on different soil types.
