Abstract
This report presents findings based on an analysis of the thermal characteristics of live US Army anti-tank mines and concrete slurry-filled M75 surrogates. The US Army's Airborne Standoff Minefield Detection System program relies on the use of surrogate mines to provide their prime contractors with targets to test and develop their systems. Analysis of 8-12 mm sensor image data collected over a period of days at Ft. A.P. Hill, Virginia indicates that the concrete slurry-filled M75 surrogates have diurnal thermal infrared signatures that are very similar to those of live M75 mines, and are therefore good mine surrogates.
