Paper Abstract

We provide an evaluation of spectral features extracted from the signal return of a forward-looking ground penetrating radar to improve the detection performance of buried explosive hazards. The evaluations are performed on data collected at two different lanes at a government test site. The performance of the one-dimensional (1D), two-dimensional (2D) and multiple (ML) spectral features will be contrasted through lane-based cross-validation for training and testing. Additional features to characterize the spectral behaviors of the forward-looking radar return will also be examined.
