Author Affiliations +
As a part of the Swedish mine detection project MOMS, an initial field trial was conducted at the Swedish EOD and Demining Centre (SWEDEC). The purpose was to collect data on surface-laid mines, UXO, submunitions, IED's, and background with a variety of optical sensors, for further use in the project. Three terrain types were covered: forest, gravel road, and an area which had recovered after total removal of all vegetation some years before. The sensors used in the field trial included UV, VIS, and NIR sensors as well as thermal, multi-spectral, and hyper-spectral sensors, 3-D laser radar and polarization sensors. Some of the sensors were mounted on an aerial work platform, while others were placed on tripods on the ground. This paper describes the field trial and the presents some initial results obtained from the subsequent analysis.
