Abstract
In this text a novel active infrared thermography approach is proposed for land mine detection. The simple approach consists in spraying the soil to inspect with water having a different temperature than soil temperature. Different temperature zones witness presence of buried mines. Theory related to pulsed thermography, simple simulation of the process, some results and envisaged battlefield deployment are presented.
