Paper Abstract

A method for classifying targets using a low-rank representation of broadband electromagnetic induction data is presented. The method does not require position data, a sensor model, or a complex inversion so it is applicable to hand-held EMI systems or a simple vehicle-based system. The low-rank representation is very straightforward to compute and does not require position significant computational resources. The method will be shown for data from a cart-based Georgia Tech EMI sensor that operates in the frequency domain and collects data at 15 logarithmically spaced frequencies from 1 kHz to 90 kHz. The data for several will be presented in the low-rank form to show that they are consistent within a target type and distinct for different targets. An example using the low-rank data to classify targets will be presented.
