Paper Abstract

This paper describes the work completed by Martin Marietta in support of the U.S. Army's standoff minefield detection system, advanced technology transition demonstration. This paper discusses the high priority and urgent need for the standoff mine detection system within the Army Combat Engineers, it presents the results of the successful application of non developmental technology/hardware in an airborne mine/minefield detection system, and it discusses the significant payoff of applying advanced ATR and high speed parallel processing. The technologies discussed include the IR imager as the source of mine imagery, advanced image processing algorithms including neural nets, and a high speed parallel processor unique to Martin Marietta called GAPP (geometric arithmetic parallel processor).
