Abstract
"The purpose of this work is to develop a system strategy to find buried landmines at distances greater than 5 meters and to demonstrate the feasibility of this system with laboratory experiments. We propose to investigate forward-looking and remote sensinglandmine detection techniques based on acoustic and laser Doppler vibrometer (LDV) techniques. During the first half of the Phase I effort we will analyze and evaluate several strategies of probing the ground velocity with the LDV system. During the secondhalf, we will conduct laboratory experiments to substantiate the results of the analyses. The research will provide inspectors with a powerful tool for safely detecting the presence of landmines. These concepts also have wide application in the area ofnon-destructive inspection for the automotive and aerospace industries"
