The aim of this paper is to present a monostatic arc-shaped ultra-wideband (UWB) printed monopole antenna system with 3-16 GHz frequency bandwidth suitable for through-wall detection. Ground penetrating radar (GPR) technique is used for detection with the gain of 6.2 dB achieved for the proposed antenna using defected ground structure (DGS) method. To serve the purpose, a simulation experiment of through-wall detection model is constructed which consists of a monostatic antenna act as transmitter and receiver, concrete wall and human skin model. The time domain reflection of obtained result is then analysed for target detection.
