Abstract
The threat of chemical and biological weapons is a serious problem and the ability to determine if an incoming artillery round contains high explosives or a chemical/biological agent is valuable information to anyone on the battlefield. Early detection of a chemical or biological agent provides the soldier with more time to respond to the threat. Information about the round type and location can be obtained from acoustic and seismic sensors and fused with information from radars, infrared and video cameras, and meteorological sensors to identify the round type quickly after detonation. This paper will describe the work with ground based acoustic and seismic sensors to discriminate between round types in a program sponsored by the Soldier Biological and Chemical Command.
