Title

New Sensors and Sensor Fusion for a Ground-based Land Mine Detection System

Abstract

The complexity of the detection and discrimination problem for land mines requires that multiple sensors and algorithms be employed. We have been attempting to develop a range of new sensors and sensor combinations that will contribute to the solution to this problem. The sensors discussed in this paper include heated waterjets combined with infrared images, non- contact acoustic focusing, and the detection of electromagnetic emissions from smart land mines.
