Abstract
This report presents a summary of signal strength testing conducted with the metal detector (MD) subsystem of the Mine H/K (hunter/killer) vehicular mine detection system. An overview of the operational characteristics of the MD subsystem, the VMV16, is provided. Tests are described that assess the variation in sensitivity across the MD coil array. Absolute sensitivity measurements of the MD array are also presented. Results presented show that the array has sufficient sensitivity to detect low metal (LM) mines provided the mines are not located further than 3.5 inches from the plane of array. Laboratory experiments indicate that saturation and a limited temporal sampling window severely restrict any opportunity for discrimination based on eddy current decay predictions/comparisions.
