Abstract
Two common techniques proposed for detection of landmines are ground-penetrating radar (GPR.) and IR imagery. Because of the wide diversity of mines, the clutter which is encountered in minefields, and variation caused by the ground surface, the task of interpreting GPR. signals is daunting. Likewise, variations in thermal properties of soil, solar heating, clutter, and surface irregularities lead to limited performance for IR imaging systems.
