PHYSICS COLLOQUIUM: Non-Intrusive Discrimination of Plastic Antipersonnel Landmines from Battlefield Clutter Using Holographic Radar

Description:
Speaker: Timothy D. Bechtel, University of Pennsylvania/Enviroscan Abstract: Typically, over 99% of the resources available for humanitarian demining are spent on collection of buried trash, and not actual landmines. The RASCAN holographic radar system has been investigated as a tool to address the problem of distinguishing buried minimum-metal landmines from ubiquitous battlefield clutter in arid environments. The RASCAN system produces two-dimensional plan-view images of the sub-surface, which are suitable for computer analysis. Scanned receptive fields are used for object location, and trained neural networks for object identification.
