Paper Abstract

Night Vision Electronic Sensors Directorate (NVESD) has initiated a program for land mine sensor development based upon explosives-related chemical (ERC) detection. As part of the NVESD ERC sensor program, we have sampled soils surrounding buried land mines at the experimental mine lanes, U.S. Army Test Site, with the assistance of the Army Corps of Engineers, Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory. Our goal has been to quantify concentrations of explosive related chemicals found in surface soils above and around nine types of buried land mines and to study their fate over time. This paper will describe the field tests conducted post-DARPA Dog Nose Program, the sampling and analysis protocol and the conclusions drawn from these tests.
