The multi-optical mine detection system (MOMS) is a research project focused on the detection of surface laid mines. In the sensor suite, both passive and active sensors are included, such as IR as well as hyper- and multispectral cameras, and 3-D laser radar. Extensive field experiments have been conducted to collect data under various environmental conditions. Three seasons have been covered during the field campaigns: Spring, summer, and autumn. Furthermore, the mines have been arranged in three different types of vegetation scenarios. Also, a long term data collection effort has been conducted to collect diurnal and seasonal signature variations. Among the signal processing techniques considered, anomaly detection emerges as a key component in a system concept. The method is based on detecting small differences between the mine-sized object and a local background. The spectral features of the detected anomalies are further analyzed with respect to general commonalities in the scene and known spectral properties of mine-like objects. In this paper we present some of the results from the project.
