Abstract

Advanced electromagnetic modelling tools are discussed, focused on sensing surface and buried land mines and unexploded ordnance, situated in a realistic soil environment. The results from these forward models are used to process scattered-field data, for target detection and identification. We address sensors directed toward the wide-area-search problem, for which one is interested in detecting a former mine field or bombing range. For this problem class we process data measured from an actual airborne radar system. Signal-processing algorithms applied include Bayesian processing and a physics-based hidden Markov model.
