Abstract : This report details a live site demonstration project conducted by WESTON at Southwest Proving Ground, Arkansas and Andersen Air Force Base, Guam as part of Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) Munitions Response Project MR-201231. The purpose of the project was to demonstrate the effectiveness of the advanced sensor and classification methodology for identifying targets of interest (TOIs) at a military construction (MILCON) site potentially containing a diversity of munitions. At Southwest Proving Ground, 11.23 acres of dynamic detection surveys were conducted using the MetalMapper advanced electromagnetic induction (EMI) sensor. A total of 2,116 anomalies were selected from the dynamic data for cued investigation. The classification methodology resulted in the correct classification of 100% of TOI and yielded a reduction in clutter digs of 83%. At Andersen Air Force Base, 2.97 acres of dynamic detection surveys were conducted using TEMTADS 2x2 advanced electromagnetic induction (EMI) sensor. A total of 1,195 anomalies were selected from the dynamic data for cued investigation. The classification methodology resulted in the correct classification of 100% of TOI and yielded a reduction in clutter digs of 81%.
