Abstract:

This report describes the design and evaluation of seismic classifiers for distinguishing among humans, heavy trucks, armored personnel carriers, helicopters, and C-131 aircraft. The data used to develop these classifiers consisted of many digitized seismometer responses to each of the intrusion targets and was collected by the Sensor Development Section of the Surveillance and Control Division at the West Lee Test Site. The Interactive Processing Section of the Information Sciences Division analyzed this waveform data and extracted an initial set of 48 features. The on-line pattern analysis and recognition system OLPARS was then used to develop several seismic classifier designs which are based on different subsets of the initial 48 features.
