Nuclear Quadrupole Resonance (NQR) offers an unequivocal method of detecting and identifying land mines. Unfortunately , the practical use of NQR is restricted by the low signal to noise ratio (SNR), and means to improve the SNR are vital to enable a rapid, reliable and convenient system. In this paper, we develop a non-linear least squares detector… (More)
The problem of optimal sensor locations in nonparametric identification of viscoelastic materials is considered. Different criteria of the covariance matrix, connected to A-and D-optimal experiment design, are considered and evaluated. The results of the paper can be used to design experiments with improved accuracy of the estimates.
