Paper Abstract

Detection of nonmetallic antipersonnel mines with unknown depth is the focus of this study. We compare the performance of two possible detection schemes. The first is based on wavelet decomposition, and the second relies on signal extraction using blind source separation techniques. The detection performance is measured in terms of the probability of false alarm and the probability of detection. The impact of mine depth knowledge on detector performance is examined. The data utilized is the Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) data provided by the Demining Technology Center (DeTeC). Only B-scan data is used in the experimental phase of this study.
