Abstract
COMPLEMENTARY SENSOR TECHNOLOGIES COMPRISED OF HIGH RESOLUTION GROUND PENETRATING RADAR (GPR), PULSED INDUCTION (PI) AND ACOUSTIC/ NUCLEAR SENSOR WILL BE INDIVIDUALLY RESEARCHED AND MODELED SPECIFICALLY FOR APPLICATION AND SUBSEQUENT INTEGRATION AS A HANDHELD LANDMINE DETECTOR IMAGER/DISCRIMINATION. DURING THE FIRST PHASE OF THE RESEARCH, GEO-CENTERS, INC. WILL PERFORM AN IN-DEPTH PRACTICAL EXAMINATION OF THE CURRENT STATE-OF-THE-ART IN THE GENERAL AREAS OF METAL DETECTION AND IMAGING; SOIL DIELECTRIC CONSTANTS, DENSITIES AND COMPACTION CHARACTERISTICS; INTERFACES BETWEEN MAN-MADE AND NATURAL OBJECTS, SIGNALS RETURN RATES AND RADIATED VARIABLES. THE REASEARCH WILL ALSO FOCUS ON THE MATHEMATICAL ASPECTS OF THE DATA PROCESSING, MULTISENSOR DATA FUSION, TARGET RECOGNITION (DETECTION AND CLASSIFICATION), PROBABILITY OF DETECTION AND FALSE ALARM, AND THE MINE RECOGNITION OPERATING CHARACTERISTICS. THE PHASE II STUDY WILL CONSIDER THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE TIME RECOGNITION SYSTEM'S PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS INCLUDING THE SOFTWARE AND HARDWARE. IN THE PHASE III, WE WILL CONDUCT A FIELD TEST TO VALIDATE THE DEVELOPMENTS MADE IN PHASE I AND II STUDIES.
