Paper Abstract

The hyperspectral data and information collection experiment obtained data over the Cuprite Mining District to determine the ability of the system to identify sub-pixel targets. Positive results were obtained for targets of crushed dolomite placed at the base of Kaolinite Hill on top of visibly similar soil. Equally positive results were obtained for Mylar targets placed on Stonewall Playa, with a 5 percent target being detected. However when a dolomite target on the playa was being sought, the Mylar target was also detected. The reasons for this spurious detection are discussed.
