Abstract
In this paper we use a sequential probability ratio test (SPRT) on ground penetrating radar (GPR) data to detect buried antipersonnel land mines and to reject clutter objects. Detection is performed for both fixed-depth and variable-depth cases. We use high-dimensional analysis of variance (HANOVA) to window the GPR data before SPRT analysis. Our algorithm uses a library of mine and clutter objects and performs a series of SPRTs using the object library for each unknown image. We also evaluate the performance of our fixed-depth and variable-depth detection algorithms versus noise and SPRT threshold value.
