Paper Abstract

The objective of this paper is to present the Swedish land mine and UXO detection project named "Multi Optical Mine Detection System", MOMS with emphasis on system concept development. The aim of the project is to define and evaluate some system concepts, one of which may results in further development. Research and investigations carried out within the MOMS project during the first 3.5 years (of 5 in total) will shortly be described. Activities have mainly been focused on basic principles, scenarios, phenomena, and experimental studies using different passive and active EO sensors including signal processing. Based on these results a number of system concepts are suggested involving both airborne and ground vehicles as well as different sensor combinations. The different concepts will be discussed in relation to overall performance such as coverage rate, ROC (receiver operating characteristics) and complexity. Areas of uncertainties will be identified and suggestions for further investigations will be proposed.
