Abstract
THE OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY EFFORT IS TO PRODUCE SPECIFICATIONS, A DETAILED DESIGN, AND PERFORMNCE CALCULATIONS FOR THREE SENSORS WHICH ARE INTEGRATED TO FORM A MINE DETECTION SYSTEM. THE SENSORS INCLUDE A FREQUENCY STEPPED GROUND PENETRATION RADAR, A DUAL BAND INFRARED SCANNER, AND A VIDEO SCANNER. THE INTEGRATION OF THE SENSOR OUTPUT INFORMATION AND ULTIMATE DECISION FOR MINE/NON-MINE OBJECT IS PERFORMED BY AN AI MICROPROCESSOR WITH A SOFTWARE 'EXPERT SYSTEM' IMPLEMENTED. WITH AN IMPROVED GROUND PENETRATION RADAR AND INFRARED SENSOR, COUPLED WITH THE 'EXPERT SYSTEM' PROCESSING, THE MINE DETECTION SYSTEM WILL BE ABLE TO PROVIDE IMPROVED PERFORMANCE OVER CURRENTLY AVAILABLE SYSTEMS.
