In this paper, ideas for modeling humanitarian mine detection sensors and their combination within Dempster- Shafer framework are presented. Reasons for choosing this framework are pointed out, taking into account specificity and sensitivity of the problem. This work is done in the scope of the HUDEM project, where three promising and complementary sensors are investigated, so detail analysis is performed in case of fusing the data from them. A way for including in the model influence of various factors on sensor and their result ins discussed as well and will be further analyzed in the future. The application of the approach proposed in this paper is illustrated on the case of sensing metallic objects, but it is possible to modify it for other situations.
