Change detection provides a powerful tool for detecting the introduction of weapons or hazardous materials into an area under surveillance, as demonstrated in past work carried out at the Army Research Laboratory (ARL). This earlier work demonstrated the potential for detecting recently emplaced surface landmines using an X-Band, synthetic aperture radar (SAR) sensor. Recent experiments conducted at ARL have extended these change detection results to imagery collected by the synthetic impulse reconstruction (SIRE) radar - a lower-frequency system developed at ARL. In this paper we describe the algorithms adopted for this change detection experiment and present results obtained by applying these algorithms to the SIRE data set. Results indicate the potential for utilizing systems such as the SIRE as surveillance tools.
