New facility designed to detect buried land mines

Researchers at Georgia Tech have built a test facility to evaluate and enhance sensors designed to detect buried land mines.

The unique automated system measures the response of individual electromagnetic induction sensors or arrays of sensors against land mines buried at many possible angles.

Waymond Scott, a professor in Georgia Tech's School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Gregg Larson, a senior research engineer in Georgia Tech's George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering, constructed the facility with funding from the U.S. Army and described it at SPIE Defense, Security, and Sensing Symposium in April.
