Paper Abstract

This paper presents the development and testing of a sensor payload for use on unmanned helicopters. This payload is designed to be used to detect and geo-position unexploded ordnance termed UXOs. This technology will be beneficial to explosive ordnance disposal personnel in their test range clearance operations. This payload is capable of gathering image, attitude, and position information during flight, and a suite of software programs was developed capable of modeling, classifying, and geo-positioning UXOs.
