Abstract : This report documents efforts to develop a common processing and interpretation platform for UXO survey data, hereinafter referred to as the UXODAS. Development of the common software platform assumes (1) that the data will be accessible in readable formats, and (2) that the data result from the most commonly used geophysical sensor types, specifically total field magnetometers (TFM), frequency-domain electromagnetic induction (FDEM) systems, and time-domain electromagnetic induction (TDEM) systems. The common platform will enable interoperability and incorporate in a readily available software package the capability and tools to import, process, interpret and visualize the results of UXO geophysical surveys. The software platform will be a continuing work in progress, with the capability to easily incorporate new processing and interpretation tools (modules) as they become available. The immediate goal is to make available to the user community the processing and interpretation tools developed under the Army Environmental Quality Technology UXO Research and Development Program by the US Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC).
