Sensor fusion for buried explosive threat detection for handheld data
Data from multiple sensors has been collected using a handheld system, and includes precise location information. These sensors include ground penetrating radar (GPR) and electromagnetic induction (EMI) sensors. The performance of these sensors on different mine-types varies considerably. For example, the EMI sensor is effective at locating relatively small mines with metal while the GPR sensor is able to easily detect large plastic mines. In this work, we train linear (logistic regression) and non-linear (gradient boosting decision trees) methods on the EMI and GPR data in order to improve buried explosive threat detection performance.
