Acoustic methods have been recently investigated for the detection of shallow landmines. Some plastic landmines have a compliant case which can made to vibrate by an airborne excitation like a loudspeaker. Our study is based on the possibility to detect landmines by contact or non-contact sensors like accelerometers or phonometers. Phonometers can provide sufficient seismic sensitivity but their response is influenced by direct acoustic wave coupling from the driving source. On the contrary… CONTINUE READING
