In this paper we present a method for passive stand off detection of trip wires. The concept described has the ability to detect trip wires camouflaged in a wide variety of natural backgrounds. The system includes an IR camera using the 3-5 micron band and a polarizing filter. A simple software algorithm is used to dewarp the trip wire in the scenes.
