Author Affiliations +
There is a need for the stand-off detection of landmines either from a land or air based platform. Hyperspectral imaging technology has great potential for stand-off landmine detection. This paper will detail work undertaken by the UK Defence Science and Technology laboratory (Dstl) investigating the use of hyperspectral imaging for the detection of landmines. Both land and air based imagery has been collected using hyperspectral sensors in the VIS-SWIR region. This data and the initial results are discussed.
