Paper Abstract

The Defence Evaluation and Research Agency (DERA) has a requirement for an IRPC system to detect surface laid and buried anti-tank landmines in support of Phase 2 of the REmote Minefield Detection System Technology Demonstration Program. Nichols Research Corporation is currently under contact to DERA to design and fabricate the IRPC system for integration in the REMIDS TDP. The IRPC is a Stokes 4-vector IR camera system designed to operate form a static tower, a moving elevated surface platform or a moving airborne platform and will be used to demonstrate the usefulness of passive IR polarimetry for mine and minefield detection. DERA will use the IRPC system to investigate the feasibility of using polarimetric techniques to detect buried and surface laid mines from an airborne platform when operated in conjunction with an ultra wideband SAR.
