Performance of a four parameter model for modeling landmine signatures in frequency domain wideband electromagnetic induction detection systems


Conference Paper

This work explores possible performance enhancements for landmine detection algorithms using frequency domain wideband electromagnetic induction sensors. A pre-existing four parameter model for conducting objects based on empirically collected data for UXO1 is discussed, and its application for accurately modeling landmine signatures is also considered. Discrimination of mines versus clutter based on the extracted model parameters is considered. Furthermore, this work will compare the effectiveness of discrimination based on the four parameter model to a matched subspace detection algorithm. 2'3 Experimental results using data from government run test sites will be presented.
