22 August 2000 Joint spectral region buried land mine discrimination performance
Author Affiliations +
Statistically significant sets of buried anti-tank mine and background electro-optic spectral signatures were collected and analyzed by the Veridian ERIM International team under the US Army's Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate Hyperspectral Mine Detection Phenomenology FY98/99 Program as reported last year. Those analyses established predicted buried mine spectral discrimination performance in key practical sensor spectral regions using typical multispectral sensor bandwidths spanning 20 to 200 nm. This year, we report further analyses of selected sets of HMDP data that quantitatively predict performance for two specific cases of joint spectral regions. This work exhibits these initial results and compares the predicted buried mine spectral discrimination performance determined from the joint and the single spectral regions.
