Waterjet based demining using acoustics with maximum-likelihood and distance-based detection techniques

Keywords and Phrases

Demining

Abstract

"This thesis is concerned with a statistical detection and estimation problem, i.e., detecting the presence of a mine by estimating stochastic parameters from data acquired when interrogating a potential mine site. The data here is the sound produced by a buried object after it has been hit by a high-pressure water jet. The problem has been broken down to a) discriminate between the case when an object has been hit and when no object is present, b) discriminate between harmful and harmless objects, and c) determine the object type."--Introduction, page 1.
