This report details a live site demonstration project conducted by WESTON at the former Southwestern Proving Ground SWPG 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 site containing a diversity of munitions in high concentrations. A total of 11.23 acres of dynamic surveys were conducted using MetalMapper advanced electromagnetic induction EMI sensor. A total of 2,116 targets were selected from the dynamic data for cued investigation, and 1,398 targets were intrusively investigated. The classification methodology resulted in the correct classification of 100 of TOI and yielded a reduction in clutter digs of 83.
