Paper Abstract

A novel feature extraction and buried object identification method for ground penetrating radar data are presented. Discriminative features are obtained by modelling the most dynamic peaks of GPR A-scan signals, utilizing principal component analysis (PCA). Landmine/clutter discrimination is then achieved using fuzzy k-nearest neighbor algorithm. The identification results are presented on a real data set of 700 surrogate landmines and clutter objects, which were collected from three different terrains with various soil types and buried object depths. We show that the proposed method gives outstanding results over this extensive data set.
