Author Affiliations +
Acoustic-to-seismic (A/S) coupling has been used successfully to locate anti-personnel (AP) mines with a high probability of detection (Pd). This work builds on previous efforts that have demonstrated the high Pd and low false alarm rate capabilities of A/S coupling in finding ant-tank (AT) mines. This paper discusses the initial results obtained from applying A/S coupling mine detection on anti-personnel mines. Due to the smaller size of AP mines, AP mine detection is more challenging than AT mine detection. The analysis results in this paper are based on A/S coupling mine detection data fro AP mines collected using a laser Doppler vibrometer-based mine detection system. The primary challenge in AP mien detection is to maintain a low false alarm rate while retaining this high probability of detection.
