Title: Advanced Electromagnetic Induction (EMI) Techniques for Buried Explosive Hazard Detection and Characterization
Agency: DOD
Contract: W909MY-12-C-0020
Award Amount: $93,712.00
 

Abstract:

We present the evaluation and demonstration of advanced electromagnetic induction (EMI) sensor modalities to enhance US Army capabilities to detect and characterize buried explosive hazards (BEHs). This technology addresses the need within the US Army for improved detection and characterization of both shallow (flush to 1 m) and deeply buried (greater than 1 m) explosive threats. The proposed research will advance capabilities in BEH detection and characterization by demonstrating a hardware solution and data processing approach that leverages recent advances in wideband miniature atomic magnetic field sensors, multi-axis and vector EMI sensors, and physics-based feature analysis. Additionally, this technology will complement existing detection sensor instrumentation, such as Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) systems, by providing an orthogonal set of target feature vectors to support target classification.
