Paper Abstract

We have conducted experiments to demonstrate the enhanced detectability of buried land mines using sensor fusion techniques. Multiple sensors, including visible imagery, IR imagery, and ground penetrating radar, have been used to acquire data on a number of buried mines and mine surrogates. We present this data along with a discussion of our application of sensor fusion techniques for this particular detection problem. We describe our data fusion architecture and discuss the some relevant results of these classification methods.
