Landmines continue to threaten U.S. and allied forces. Conventional mine detection sensors, such as ground penetrating radar (GPR), can give many false alarms due to natural and manmade objects in the ground having mine-like characteristics to these sensors. This can result in a slow advance rate as the forces must deal with these false alarms. Nuclear(More)
The UK Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) has proven the utility of its Infrared Polarisation Sensor for forward-looking detection of flush and surface laid landmines. The system utilises a spinning polariser to analyse the polarisation content of a scene and detection is based on this analysis. This paper is based on work carried out by Dstl(More)
X-ray backscatter imaging can be used for a wide range of imaging applications, in particular for industrial inspection and portal security. Currently, the application of this imaging technique to the detection of landmines is limited due to the surrounding sand or soil strongly attenuating the 10s to 100s of keV X-rays required for backscatter imaging.(More)
