Contribution To Book Anthology


We present a study on detection of buried anti-personnel mines (APM) by means of infrared imaging. First, an analytical study of a theoretical thermal model is presented. Then we describe an original approach towards the simulation of an extended model and summarize the results. These are then compared with results obtained from experiments in laboratory and real environment conditions. In order to use the whole dynamic information contained in the image sequences, two methods for extracting the difference in dynamic temperature response between objects in a scene are introduced and applied.
