Paper Abstract

A thermal neutron analysis (TNA) detector was developed as a confirmatory sensor for the Canadian ILDP multisensor teleoperated vehicle mounted land mine detector system. ILDP is the only multisensor mine detection system with a confirmation sensor which can reduce false alarms to acceptable levels. The TNA has been experimentally proven to be capable of detection of anti-tank and large anti- personnel mines in acceptable short time periods in its intended role. It has performed well, in extreme climates, in Canadian and U.S. stand-alone tests and in U.S. tests of the complete ILDP system. Current research is aimed at developing a version which is ready for production and field.
