Paper Abstract

This paper concerns general statistical properties of mine detection systems utilizing high (e.g. acoustic) returns in the presence of reverberation, modeled as a (background) random field. Recently developed extensions of the 1D theory of high level stochastic excursions are used to describe the occurrences of high peaks of a 2D background reverberation field by a (theoretically justified) Poisson model. This model and its further refinements are then used in discussing false alarm, detection, and classification probabilites.
