Abstract:

This report describes the REmote Minefield Detection System (REMIDS) developed by the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station to detect surface UXO. REMIDS collects three channels of optically aligned image data consisting of two active laser channels, one polarized reflectance and the other total reflectance, and one passive thermal infrared channel. The system also incorporates onboard sensor data recording and post-processing insertion of differential Global Positioning System (GPS) coordinates. The principle behind REMIDS is to enhance the discrimination of surface UXO by relying on multiple signatures: surface UXO may exhibit a unique combination of reflectance, polarization, temperature, and footprint (shape), compared to natural objects in the UXO's surroundings. In addition to a description of the phenomenology of REMIDS, an evaluation of the performance of the system at the Yuma Proving Ground (Arizona) and at Ft. Rucker (Alabama) is presented. Items used at those sites included mines, rockets, mortars, projectiles, and bombs. Performance curves (P sub d vs. P sub fa) are presented for both test sites. Furthermore, measurements at several ordnance-free sites were obtained at Yuma to assess the potential use of REMIDS as a large area search tool.
