Wideband electromagnetic induction (WEMI) sensors can be used to detect, classify, and locate metallic targets buried underground. By examining the WEMI model from a new perspective, a low-rank equivalence for the WEMI data is obtained. The low-rank physical WEMI model directly leads to a new “filterless” processing framework that differs radically from traditional approaches to WEMI processing. The new framework enables target signature recovery independent of location estimation. Processing of field data with the new filterless WEMI framework is presented to show classification results based on the low-rank target signature.
