Paper Abstract

This paper quantifies the mine detection performance by fusing ground penetrating radars and a metal detector. Specifically, the fusion scheme used in this paper is ANDing different sensors with high probability of detection regardless of the false alarm rate. As the false alarms are random, and each sensor processes detected objects differently to produce high probability of detection, fusion by ANDing eliminates the majority of false alarms, and hopefully maintains the high probability of detection based on the mutually exclusive property of the sensor being fused. This paper uses data collected with different GPR's of Vehicular Mounted Mine Detection ATD systems and a handheld metal detector at Aberdeen Testing Center, Maryland and Socorro, New Mexico test sites. The total number of mines encountered and area coverage are approximately 450 and 13000m2, respectively.
