Paper Abstract

Research conducted at Georgia Tech over the past several years has focused on an examination of the signature characteristics of various background materials. These efforts seek to understand the physical basis and features of these signatures in order to aid the development of robust landmine detection techniques. The technical efforts in this study focused on identifying various soil types in LWIR hyperspectral imagery based on spectral characteristics. This paper will discuss the analytical approach and present results from these studies. A discussion of these terrain features as false alarm and clutter sources will also be presented.
