Abstract
AN EXISTING SYSTEM HAS DEMONSTRATED, IN QUIET CONDITIONS, VERY RELIABLE DETECTION OF HUMANS HIDDEN IN VEHICLES. SEISMIC VIBRATIONS ARE THE MAJOR, UNAVOIDABLE LIMITATIONS. MEASUREMENT OF THE SEISMIC VIBRATIONS AND COHERENT ANALYSES WILL BE UTILIZED TO COMPUTE AND SUBTRACT THE EFFECT OF THE SEISMIC INTERFERENCE ON THE VEHICLE MOTION. THE PHASE I EFFORT WILL IMPROVE THE RELIABILITY, INCREASE THE SEARCH RATE, AND EXPAND THE CONDITIONS UNDER WHICH THE SYSTEM CAN OPERATE. DATA WILL BE COLLECTED, OPTIMIZED STATISTICAL TECHNIQUES WILL BE DEFINED FOR THE SUBTRACTION OF SEISMIC NOISE INTERFERENCE, AND THE DETECTION ALGORITHM WILL BE ENHANCED. THE REQUIREMENTS FOR A FIELD TEST SYSTEM INCORPORATING THESE ENHANCEMENTS WILL BE DEFINED.
