Abstract
Northeastern University is heading one of three teams involved in five year, 5,000,000 dollar Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative programs in demining, supported by the Army Research Office. The Northeastern effort involves a team of six other universities and small businesses and integrates electromagnetic, acoustic, and optical sensing modalities. We are designing sensors to measure many of the physical characteristics of the ground with and without mines, and developing carefully-tailored signal processing algorithms that specifically take the sensor and the physics into account.
