We study a uniqueness inverse problem for two coupled hyperbolic PDEs with Neumann boundary conditions by means of an additional measurement of Dirichlet boundary traces of the two solutions on a suitable, explicit sub-portion $\Gamma_1$ of the boundary $\Gamma$, and over a computable time interval $T > 0$. Under sharp conditions on $\Gamma_0 = \Gamma\\Gamma_1, T >0$, we establish uniqueness of both the damping and potential coecients for each equation. The proof uses critically the Carleman estimate in [11], together with a suggestion in [8, Thm 8.2.2, p.231]. A Riemannian version would also hold, this time by using the corresponding Carleman estimates in [19].
