1—Images of Landmines Produced by GPR System cal in the design of a GPR system are signal-processing algorithms, which filter out clutter signals and select objects to be declared as mines. GPR is a mature technology, but it has not yet been widely deployed for mine detection. GPR was first used in 1929 to measure the depth of an Austrian glacier (Olhoeft, 2002). The Army tested rudimentary GPR techniques for mine detection in the 1940s. The first commercial GPR systems were developed in 1972. Since then, use of GPR for locating buried objects ranging from utility pipelines to archaeological artifacts has proliferated.

The “summary evalua- 18 Alternatives for Landmine Detection tion” section included with each technology description below indicates the results of the task force evaluations. INNOVATIVE ELECTROMAGNETIC DETECTION SYSTEMS A number of innovative methods are being explored that search for buried mines based on changes in the electromagnetic properties of the surface soil and shallow subsurface. These methods include ground-penetrating radar (GPR), electrical impedance tomography (EIT), x-ray backscatter, and infrared/hyperspectral systems.
