Abstract : In 2003 the Defense Science Board observed: The problem is that instruments that can detect the buried UXOs also detect numerous scrap metal objects and other artifacts, which leads to an enormous amount of expensive digging. The FY06 Defense Appropriation contained funding for the 'Development of Advanced, Sophisticated, Discrimination Technologies for UXO Cleanup' in the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP). Significant progress has been made in classification technology over the past several years. ESTCP conducted a UXO Classification Study at the former Camp Sibert, AL. The results of the first demonstration were very encouraging. ESTCP is sponsoring a second study at the former Camp San Luis Obispo, CA. This document describes the planned demonstration at San Luis Obispo. There are two primary objectives of this study: 1) Test and validate detection and classification capabilities of currently available and emerging technologies on real sites under operational conditions. 2) Investigate in cooperation with regulators and program managers how classification technologies can be implemented in cleanup operations.
