Abstract
THE PROPOSED EFFORT WILL INVESTIGATE THE UTILITY OF MULTISENSOR IMAGERY PRODUCTS TO SATISFY REQUIREMENTS FOR DETECTION AND MONITORING OF UNDERGROUND EXPLOSIONS, SUCH AS THOSE PRODUCED AT NUCLEAR TEST SITES. THE RESEARCH WILL INVOLVE AN ANALYSIS OF EXISTING RADAR, THERMAL, MULTISPECTRAL, AND TOPOGRAPHIC PRODUCTS OBTAINED OVER A U.S. TEST SITE. HARDCOPY AND SOFTCOPY ANALYSES WILL YIELD INFORMATION ABOUT SOIL DISTURBANCES, GROUND FEATURE CHANGES, AND OTHER RELEVANT INDICATORS OF EXPLOSIVE ACTIVITY. FINDINGS AND MEASUREMENTS FROM EACH IMAGE WILL BE COMBINED IN A GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION DATA BASE. VARIOUS IMAGE AND MAP PROJECTS WILL BE REGISTERED TO ONE ANOTHER TO DETERMINE WHETHER SUCH FUSION PROVIDES ADDITIONAL INFORMATION.
