Contribution To Book Anthology


Experiments on mine detection with short range ground-based sensors (GPR, dynamic and static IR imaging, US re ectometry) are reviewed. The emphasis is on the processing and pattern recognition algorithms, although these cannot be discussed without taking into account some of the physical principles of the sensors and data acquisition circumstances. The paper proposes some original approaches, which have primarily been evaluated in controlled test conditions. Further re nement and redesign are needed before going to real life situations.
