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