Abstract
This is a follow-up work to analyze completely the detectability of the buried mines for the spectral regions extending from Visible/Near IR (VNIR) to Longwave IR (LWIR). Similar to previous work focusing on the VNIR region (1) this paper presents the quantitative detectability of the buried mines in the 3-5)mum and 8-12)mum regions. Specifically, this paper presents a statistical analysis for the buried mines in specified spectral regions for various soils and burial durations. As shown in the previous work (1) the performance based on the single hypothesis test using the distance measure was better than the intensity thresholding method. This paper focuses on only the distance measure method for statistical analysis of the data, and subsequently, classification to quantify the detectability of the buried mines in the 3 to 5 and 8 to 12 micron regions.
