Abstract
Detection and clearance of subsurface land mines has been one of the challenging humanitarian and military tasks. Among the several surface land mines detection techniques available, passive polarimetric in the visible range holds a high promise to lead a high probability of detection. In this paper we show how a single sensor producing multiple polarized and unpolarized imagery can be used to improve the probability of detection of subsurface land mines. This improvement is shown using the Receiver Operation Characteristic (ROC) curve approach.
